I was gone for almost a week. I went to San Diego where the weather was mid-70’s with blue sky and bright yellow light and completely amazing. I sat on the sand by the water and practically cried because it was such a treat.
At home I’ve been watching the leaves since the weather turned cool but they didn’t seem to do much. But while I was gone they were busy.
It was still daylight when my plane descended and we did one of those tipping turns going from north to west and I could see changing leaves all over Oregon.
The neighborhood adjacent to ours has lots of huge leafy trees and when they start shedding it’s quite a mass. Looks like its going to start raining any minute to turn it into a yellowish sludge.
