I took Jac for a walk and had one of those moments where realisation just kicks in.
It's been obvious for a while that the days are shorter and the nights drawing in (we're past the Autumn equinox after all) but I noticed that it was dark — truly dark.
A thought came to mind, unbidden:
A breeze blows up. An autumnal chill makes itself known — born of, and borne by, that breeze.
Can't believe it's October tomorrow.
