Day 233 Mile 233: Looking Forward and Reflecting. Over the last few days the gradual turning of the seasons has been noticeable as summer gives way to autumn but today this does not necessarily feel like something to bemoan. Early this morning I went for a run along the prom. The tide was a long way out leaving puddles of mirror glass to reflect the cotton-wool sky. The air is completely still, which is a rarity for this part of the world, particularly right by the sea and lends an atmosphere of expectation to proceedings.
The low sun still has a lot of power in it as it almost blinding when you are heading towards it but lacks the summer heat of a week or so ago. On glass and metal surfaces the light has still not yet evaporated the condensation from last night’s dew fall, the first time I have noticed it since the spring.
In short it is a beautiful morning, the sort which can leave you looking forward to the crackle of frosts, gloves, fireworks and the sparkle of winter. I’m not wanting to wish the time away but it is so easy to dread the end of the summer that every so often it is nice to revel in the endless dance 🙂
The spring, the summer,
The childing autumn, angry winter, change
Their wonted liveries, and the mazed world,
By their increase, now knows not which is which.
