September was an incredible month…there was baking, and the first day of school, and so many amazing skies (most of which were captured on my morning walks!) and there were good sips, Pilates, Sherman, and a new do! One thing struck me in looking back was this: even though the daylight hours were waning, the light itself was truly spectacular! Especially for taking pictures because it is softer and warmer and I definitely noticed that in this months photo images.
The video shares 1 minute of a September that felt like it began and ended about that fast!
And, that is a wrap for the week! I am heading off to Michigan bright and very early tomorrow morning. (Okay, really dark and insanely early as I will be on my way long before the sun rises!) I will see you all back here next week in time for Unraveled Wednesday!
I love the process of hand washing woolens. And, this morning my woolen mediations include the hope that this unbearable humidity breaks soon! And, yes I confess – I am longing for cool mornings that require a sweater!
“Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here. Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history.
Farewell, fellow Americans. God bless you, and God bless America.” – John McCain
Senator McCain seemed to have impeccable timing in life and in death and while I did not always agree with his politics, I had deep respect for this man who gave so much to this nation.
The nonsense about flags yesterday set off my anger and my outburst at the news did not make me feel any better. But, then Mr. Davis read the Farewell Statement from Senator McCain and I realized that what position flags were in did not diminish the man that Senator McCain was nor the respect that this grateful nation has for him.
In death, he has lifted us all up with words that are both profound, comforting, and yes, inspiring. I am so glad that you, in the words of Dylan Thomas, “did not go gentle into that good night.”
