Fall Pathways: Gated

Portrait Of Change

Autumn arrives for 2022 at 9:03 PM EDT for where we are in Rhode Island. At this moment, there are few changes save for a bit of a chill as I take the dog out for his ablution in the early morning.

Soon the weather, the light, and the leaves will change. Some of the change has already started due to a summer drought. It will come with alacrity, seeming to come all at once. But this is the nature of Autumn in New England. And it is always beautiful, so we embrace this wonderous change.
