There's always a bit of sadness that comes along when the days get shorter and August gives way to September. Still, the change that comes brings new opportunities to see the world, quite literally, in a different light. Watch how the morning light comes in at a different angle, and how it illuminates the morning dew. A very industrious spider spun an intricate web in my outdoor shower a couple of weeks ago, and I don't think I would have noticed it if not for the sun's shift in angle.
As we gear up for work or school, we watch as the earth begins to settle down for a long winter's nap. Maybe this disconnect between humans and nature accounts for a lack of harmony in our lives. Or maybe we should appreciate all the more whatever daylight we can get.
