Fall is here- Orion bright and center stage in the early morning. Masses of blackbirds are gathering for migration, often seen on the utility wires along streets and highways. Crickets are moving into the house and I hear them at night chirping in the basement. Spiders are moving in, too, and given their penchant for biting my bottom (a fresh brown recluse bite last week) I do sometimes kill one if it’s a brown recluse. Smells, changing light and shadows, sound of rustling leaves- all these signs of fall I love.
