Pressed

I'm wondering if we'll get another day of gauzy cirrus clouds such as we had yesterday. It was very nice, but I was too busy to spend much time looking at it. Tonight has been clear and cool, the moonless sky full of sparkling stars. At the higher elevations wind was expected, but here the air has been quiet, the occasional vague breeze making a few dry leaves skip down the street with a soft rattle. So far, autumn is in no rush. I wouldn't mind having the time to be a bit more leisurely myself, but no matter how mild the days remain, they get shorter. I feel perpetually pressed for time. Now, for example. Must get to sleep.
