Going out before full dawn arrived this morning I saw massed clouds shading the valley. Then I slept with dreams of rain but woke to clear sky. A squirrel danced along the back fence, and the birds nearly emptied their bowl, splashing the water out as they bathed. I refilled it.

The air has stilled again, with none but the slightest of intermittent breezes to add a barely noticeable chill to the pleasant coolness. Both afternoon and evening were like unrippled pools in which I floated, utterly serene. Thanks, October. More of the same, please.
