Today is the first day of Fall or rather the Sun is directly above the equator and the autumn equinox will occur in North America at 11:09 tonight EST (according to Coordinated Universal Time). That maybe a wonderfully glorious event in the heavens, its hard to know from here.
From where I sit this day is much like the one before it, which in retrospect may prove to be Divine with time. With time I will set aside that frustrating conversation with a not so attentive customer service representative who clearly had a hearing comprehension issue. Its hard for me to blame her, now that twenty minutes have past, I have come to terms with the notion that I too often do not comprehend what other people say. I offer answers to questions they didn't ask in an effort to speed things along for my own comfort.
We have sped things along through the summer, those unbearably hot days of August, and now autumn has arrived to slow us down and change the leaves and rob us of sunlight and bring us bright orange pumpkins. I don't have a lot of fall specific memories, boring days formally spent in classrooms and now in an office building. Even so I have a great fondness for the Fall. The weather will soon require a jacket to be warn, which in itself is always exciting - that kind of thing doesn't last very long where I live so the novelty never seems to fade.
