Accept

I left work a little late today. After running errands I arrived home in the gloaming that comes just before nightfall. Some folks may be unhappy about how early night falls now and will fall for the next several months.

I prefer to not descend into unhappiness about something I cannot control. Rather to accept and appreciate what I cannot change. A time to reflect and give thanks for on the years’ gifts and blessings, to ponder The Great Mystery of the next year.

Relief

July’s first half was hot, humid, and frequently cloudless so we endured what we had to. The last ten days or so were like this – a few degrees cooler, often filled with billowing cumulus, and frequent light to moderate rainfall. What a relief!

We will see what August sees fit to bring our way.
