As grey evening settles in, a grey cat sits on the grey pavement in the middle of the street. Grey can be pleasant and restful. I find myself doing little more than is essential, these days. I will indulge myself in relaxing pursuits while the mild days last, for as much of each of those days as I can. There will be time for expending energy later, when the night falls early and the air is cold. For now, I let my thoughts drift aimlessly with the soft breezes of October. After October, everything will be different. It always is.
