October 1st

September ended with the smell of Fall permeating the air as fire blazed in the back pasture consuming a pile of discarded debris from recently cleared land.  A single wisp of blue smoke can still be seen spiraling upward from the remaining embers of yesterday’s bonfire.  As the sun peeps over a bank of clouds on the eastern horizon, it catches a glimpse of its reflection in the silvery lake nestled at the foot of the hill.  Meanwhile, the warmth of the first rays of sunlight gently nudge nature awake heralding a new day. Welcome, October!
