Today had the feel of fall to me. I think it was a combination of things, starting with the heavy cloud layer that kept the brightness of the day more at a gloomy level than I’ve become accustomed to in this year of sun. Accompanying the gloom, a return to cooler temperatures with the snow on the trees down to around 2000 feet or less (which is a good thing for water supplies). Finally, I also spent a fair amount of time last night and today reading first third of a novel set partially in this region. At least so far the emotional space of the novel makes me resonate more with darkening of fall and darkness of winter. I have not read a novel in a while, so it’s interesting to be reminded of the effects such intensive reading can have one me.
