Autumn came. Just as quickly as that, with a subtle shift of light, it's here.
Autumn is my favorite season, it always has been, since I was a little girl.
It doesn't have anything to do with Labor Day and white shoes or what the calender says.
For me, it's always been an undefinable thing. A slight change in the angle of the sun, a shift in the quality of the light, a sharpening in the texture of the air, a change in the way the waves break on the sand.
Everything is cleaner, brighter, more real.
I can't gauge it by the days marked off on a piece of paper. I don't care about some arbitrary date.
I just know it's here now, for that brief golden time.
