Early Autumn

Like a knife through a melon
autumn slices summer


This is a quote is from a poem by a Chinese poet of the eighth century. More than twelve hundred years later it still sums things up quite nicely. The rain is here, it can't be more than sixty degrees outside, and everyone is feeling the change. A few red leaves might make the situation easier to take, but they won't be out for some time yet. Even the squirrels seem sleepy.

Yeah, we practically had to ford rivers at the park to get Simon into school this morning!
