The leaves have fallen from the trees across the street, but this morning I watched two stellar jays flutter from branch to branch. A nut hatch also scurried about his business as the sun highlighted the gnarled,weathered and snapped appendages of the old poplars that are determined to thrive despite the early winds this year. Although clouds dot the morning sky, the sun is like those old poplars. It is determined to win.
So I draw from their persistence today and rejoin the writing world. I look forward to winter with the anticipation of a child. As the rains and winds approach, I have the perfect reason to stay indoors and write.
I have other writing I must do, so will sign off for now, but I will be back soon.
