Entirely grey today, and cold, and the smell of smoke from wood fires and burning leaves drifts through the dimness. I saw a cat posing in sphinx attitude as a hood ornament on a parked car. The engine must have been warm. On my back fence, a bird with a red cap glared down at a blue jay on the lawn. Out my window, I see a mulberry branch whose leaves still refuse to turn yellow and fall. They seem very bright against the slate clouds and the dark green pines. Only a little more than a week to the winter solstice. Good.
