The autumnal equinox has come and gone and monsoon left as quickly as it came. As the days grow noticeably shorter, I struggle to wake up in the morning because it’s still just a little bit dark outside.
I’m not a winter person. People laugh at my choice of the word “winter” here in Arizona. What they don’t understand is that Bisbee is a mile high and where we live caps out at about 4400 feet. It gets really fucking cold here. The mesquite trees are deciduous–dropping their leaves leaving nothing but spindly crooked branches for the months to come. The wild grass is turning from green to gold.
Goodbye Summer. I had a great time–especially with all the fantastic sunsets you produced. Looking forward to seeing you again next year. The next few months are going to be scary to say the least. With the political climate, the market tanking and all the other shit that’s going on, I’m just a teeny bit apprehensive about the inevitable future. All I can do is pray.
