I’m writing this on the day of midterm break. The entire campus is silent. The weather is wet and moody in a properly autumnal fashion. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to put on more shirts. Hibernation weather.
Last weekend however was the opposite: Dry, bright, warm. We went to my aunt Sharon’s farm so that kiddo could ride with my uncle Donnie in the combine. Sharon and Donnie have decided to retire (I think they are due!) so this was their final harvest. Next year they are going to rent the land out to Donnie’s brother so they will be involved, but not in the same way. We spent the day with my cousin Amy and her kids. Amy and I are basically the same age and have always gotten along but we don’t see each other often, perhaps less than once a year. She lives in Ohama. It was a bittersweet day. I’m glad we could be there for it and I’m glad kiddo got the chance to actually be part of the farming process.
This would be a fine album cover for this week’s mix.
