Hold On

This weekend was so lovely: I was especially glad for the way we were able to shift, all together, from silliness to stillness. (Though the photo makes our sweet time spent looking up at the pine tops look sort of like a still from a horror film!)

I want to hold on to fall just like this:

Today is the official kick-off day for the Winter Arts Initiative! And the weather this morning felt right for it: gray and rain. From Robert Hass:

So summer gives over--
white to the color of straw
dove gray to slate blue
a little rain
a little light on the water
