A shorty today…just 40 minutes. The dog put a stop to further exploration of a new monkey trail we discovered. It’s weird to be walking on a path and not know where it’s going to end, with the real possibility of getting lost. The best trails are always those that start that way, but it’s been a while since I was on a truly unfamiliar path. Literally and metaphorically. I would have kept going, but Maggie stopped dead on the leaf-strewn trail and threw me a ‘please, no more’ look. So, we turned around. She’s too big to carry, and I’m a sucker for those eyes.
As I said in another blog post, September, like May, displays the most dramatic change from beginning to end. It was green and now it’s yellow, and we still have a week to go. It will be peak Autumn by Friday. Unbelievable. Also unbelievable? The weather. It’s going to be 30 today.
