Signs of Fall

Things I saw today, all signs of fall:

  • Kids running – an invitational cross country meet, my iconic autumn sport – at the UNM north golf course
  • The first clumps of yellow leaves on the bosque cottonwoods
  • A praying mantis on our screen door
  • Lissa making cactus juice, a mess of the most lovely, deep rich shade of purple scattered all about the kitchen

Today we must go to the fair.
