the weather has changed and autumn is here. only, i know in a few days, the temperature will be 80 again--maybe even 90. but there is great hope and peace in this calm and still air. and so rachael and i fight with matt and dj about opening windows and turning off the a/c. LET IN THE HUMIDITY, ALONG WITH THE BUGS. FALL IS HERE. but we will lose every time. the bugs will come and the air will be sticky and the warmth will return. we anticipate fall and open our lives to the refreshing colours it brings--
though these are merely reflections of decay and foreshadowings of death.
