Friday morning - We've had our first real norther. I was out when it came, felt the first wind shift, the first drops of cool rain. I've been waiting for this for weeks, and with high eagerness the last three days since I've begun to see color shifts in the trees. But its been a disappointment - not enough wind, not enough quickening. I feel guilty about feeling ungrateful for a delightful change, lowered temperatures, much needed rain. But I do feel ungrateful. I wanted this norther to blow into my soul and clean out every sense of sludge.

I feel ungrateful too! We had the ONE night of beautiful clearness here and now it's back to STIFFLING mugginess and unrelenting humidity. I can't wait for the wind and energy and briskness that wait ahead. I hope we can enjoy some together this weekend!
