The Harvest Moon.

I was out for my everyday 8,5 k this morning and saw yet another V-shaped ribbon in the air consisting of birds heading South for the winter. The Echinaceas are in full bloom, and the Harvest Moon is just round the corner. It is just under 3 months to my birthday, and the darkest time of the year. I am always filled with a feeling of melancholy come end of August, just as the stores are filling up with wintery wardrobe must haves. I wish I could wear my sandals all year round and never have to wrap up in down-filled clothes ever again.
