Reset Thirty-Six, Day Eleven

The furnace has been going a lot and it's making me very thirsty. It wasn't on much Saturday afternoon, but evening rapidly chilled and it's been going for several minutes every hour ever since. It dries my throat out. I think I've downed about a quart of water in the last four hours. Or was it six hours? I lose track. Things are not what they once were. Maybe there will be fog again when morning comes, and then the sky will match my mind.

It's time to be nodding off and falling from chairs or falling into bed. I chose the latter. The floor is hard.




Sunday Verse



Autumn Sonnet


by May Sarton


If I can let you go as trees let go
Their leaves, so casually, one by one;
If I can come to know what they do know,
That fall is the release, the consummation,
Then fear of time and the uncertain fruit
Would not distemper the great lucid skies
This strangest autumn, mellow and acute.
If I can take the dark with open eyes
And call it seasonal, not harsh or strange
(for love itself may need a time of sleep)
And, treelike, stand unmoved before the change,
Lose what I lose to keep what I can keep,
The strong root still alive under the snow,
Love will endure – if I can let you go.
