It’s October. I realized yesterday that it was the last day of September, but for some strange reason that didn’t translate into today being October.
October is a pronouncement that autumn is truly here. October is pumpkins and clearing out the garden and leaves on the ground. I used to think of autumn almost like dying, but now I think of it as the beginning of the cleanup to prepare for things that are new. I used to feel that spring was the beginning, but it’s like building a house. Autumn is clearing the land and laying the foundation while spring is putting up the framing. You can’t have spring without autumn.
Since it’s October, I’m going to enjoy it.
