Equinox -- The Great Wheel Turns

And what a pleasure to see a sunrise, unblocked by trees! We face due east and I've always enjoyed following the sun's course during the year. It's at mid-point now, as it moves from north to south (where it'll be behind  a ridge by winter solstice.)

Though Fall is officially here, the weather is still rather warm. But the air is drier and something in the quality of the light is turning my thoughts toward getting ready for cooler days. 

I find myself reorganizing the pantry and freezer, taking stock of what's on hand and making notes of what's needed. (Getting ready for winter is not unlike getting ready for a hurricane as winter can bring impassable roads and/or power outages. Not always, not often, but it never hurts to be prepared.)

The season's turn brings new energy and I'm making mental lists . . . they need to stay in my mind because if I write them down, it will be too daunting. But perhaps I'll begin with getting rid of the mildew and mold caused by a damper than usual summer.

And that wheel seems to turn ever more quickly.

The morning of equinox seems to promise a bright, but still damp, weather to come. But then again, I'm no soothsayer.

Yes we can feel it all the way out here in Southern California. Low 60's at night and high 70s to low 80s during the day. By November we will be in the low 60's to high 50s at night. Rain maybe in January or February. Frost in the winter with low 40s high 30s. That's about it for our clime
