My friend is on the road again chasing down ideas for a book about all the Waylands in the United States.. What a gorgeous time of year to be heading to the MidWest. Thanks to a website I can follow his progress, and perhaps, needle him a bit along the way to remind him that he really isn't that far away from all of us.
Pumpkins surround our entry way and they are sparking with dew running off their faces in the early hours. More leaves have come down to blow away, and I wonder if their descent will ever end before my energy runs out. It is a no-win situation every year.
The last sip of pumpkin spice coffee keeps me lingering, while my cat has my lap all to himself purring away contentedly. October is a month to return to the earth all good things.
