The clocks have turned back, darkness falls earlier now, and
the view from my front yard is cold, rainy, and windy.
The temperature is 47° and dropping.
Favorite warm hats are out of the closet
snow is in the forecast today
welcome to November in Northeast Ohio USA.
The view from my front porch has changed radically since the hope-filled day of Rona Musings Lessons From a Tree:
The maple tree’s leaves are turning,
as if the old tree has had enough of their adornment and wants to be naked.
The pine tree stands sentinel –
Fall rain leading to winter’s snow has never been my favorite…
I can appreciate fall colors when the sun is shining, but days like today bring doldrums on in nothing flat.
I suspect Rona social distancing will not be as difficult as the weather turns colder and the age-old urge to stay inside and hibernate grows stronger.
On days like today I want to crawl back into bed, pile on the blankets, and enter the darkest worlds in my head.
But since that is thought is terrifying, I will do laundry, cook, and perhaps watch a movie or two instead…
I am grateful that November is one step closer to spring!
