I like these photos of flowers and leaves that I took in Canada--the end of a season and the beginning of a new one. In California, I remind myself of these changes by ripping out the last of the vegetable garden and laying down a weed mat. I prune bushes and trees. I look forward to days when there might be gray skies and even rain because they change your perspective and remind you that there is a rhythm and cycle as we spin with the world in the universe.
And so I plan to hunker down with my writing and art projects. I look forward to the arrival of shorter days and maybe, just maybe, a few cold, rainy days that will keep me from playing outdoors. In any event, I plan to write something scary for October and also pick up my novel writing again.
