The Autumn of My Life

Sunday was a dreary day of constant rain. However, it washed fresh and crystal clean the day that followed. A day of brilliant sunshine cutting through the clear, cool, crisp air illuminating the remaining leaves of yellows, golds, red, rust, and copper that clinged to the almost bare branches. Others covered doorsteps, stairs, sidewalks and lawns. overflowing into the streets, as though they were harvest decorations. Then dance across the road with the puff of the wind. Overhead, radiant blue fills the skies along with white cotton candy clouds. Yes, it is a day to smile! 11-27-06
