When I was listening to the radio this morning, the mid-morning, early-afternoon DJ, announcer or whatever they are called, was making mention of Autumn beginning this Saturday, the 20th. Well, it does not start on that date. It is September 23, the same day as my late father’s birthday was. Then about an hour later she said the same thing again, about the date that Autumn begins.
I was tempted to take a wake over to the radio station, which is just around the corner from where I live, and tell her or someone to tell when the correct date is. I mean, is it too much to take a look at the calendar to see what day the new season begins.
Its just one of those things in life that bugs the shit out of me.
Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.
— Yoko Ono
Texas and other states got hit with snow.
Here in Massachusetts, its warm and wet.
Lots of rain, and some wind.
For some, traveling will be a bitch.
Others will just stay home and not have to worry about it.
As Eric Clapton would sing, “Let it rain.”
A sign of things to come.
After a morning rain, now it is overcast.
Looking out the window, A pondering Mind sees the various trees, slowly changing color.
I guess it’s goodby to Summer and hello to Autumn, which arrives in the Eastern Time Zone at 4:44 pm.
Where does the time go?
Shorter days means …
Each morning the sun rises later than the previous one.
Each evening the sun sets earlier than the previous one.
The nights and mornings are a bit chillier.
Its the sign of the Autumnal season, which is not to far away.
