One morning last week, I opened our front door and as soon as I stepped out of it I knew something had changed. The air was fresh in a way that was hard to describe, yet very familiar.
I encountered the same sensations again, but in the evening, at the end of sailing class. The sun was not lingering like it had, and the evening breeze was a little more chill than before.
Then this morning I looked out our kitchen window and saw the first leaves on the maples across the way had turned red.
Autumn is on its way.
