It seems just plain wrong to moan about anything on this, another glorious Autumn day in southern Ontario. The sun is shining; the sky is brilliant blue; it's a warm 24°C. And the leaves are exploding with colour. They are also falling. I couldn't help but notice a constant dripping sound, something like the sound small raindrops make when they meet a solid surface. A reminder that these amazing days of Indian Summer will not, cannot, last. So it's best to make the most of gems like this.
But the umbrella is up on the deck,
and a chair invites me to come,
sit a spell.
I dare not refuse such hospitality.
