There's a ghosty stillness about the house this morning. It's only the two of us as usual, and we live in a quiet neighborhood anyway. But it feels different today.
I must be channeling the back to school days of years ago. Feeling the unnatural state of the normally unquiet rooms of a buzzing household suddenly falling silent the first day that school starts up again after a bustling summer.
Even the light has changed without me noticing. A new season trying to slip in from behind the lace curtains, or through the crack under the door.
Might as well welcome it in. Let it gather itself up and take up its customary place on the calendar, the walls, the furniture. Bringing its scents, sounds, and color with it in its weathered baggage to dispel the weird hush of an old season passing along its way . . . .
Wishing you a lively first week of September!
Ciao! for now!
