Been quiet around here. Spending time outdoors to take in the start of autumn: the profuse colors, scents, and sounds. The fog rolling in and then out, the stillness that abounds. A heat wave has found its way here, and because of it I move languidly among the mums, blueberries, and dainty yellow daisies. Hopefully this heat wave is short lived. The earthy, rich colors though are here to stay as I stroll around and attempt to capture their beauty through the opportune lens of a smartphone. Clumsily, quietly, I prevail.
