The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.
A poem from Emily Dickinson on the subject of autumn. It's Friday and again I'm relieved. It was a short week, but for some reason it feels like it's been a full-fledged, jam-packed, squish-me-with-responsibilities type of week. Andrew's been wading through his first week back to school, his second year of law school, so it's been a very full week for our little family. Some transitions can be delightful and beautiful, like the transition from summer into fall, but often transitions are coupled with a bit of angst and discomfort. Strrrrretchhhhhhh. Can you feel it? For all of you who are going through moments of stretching right now, I wish you a beautifully relaxing weekend, full of recouping and enjoyment!
