Extremes of darkness and light
Sheltering your eyes from a direct gaze
Preferring the shadow
Until the Moon passes
Recognizing a unique phase
I missed out seeing Folsom Street Fair and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass as I sat inside, away from the sunshine, sewing up costumes, getting ready for the extravaganza that is October. Please join me as the season shifts from summer to fall, light to dark, getting ready for the thinning of the veil, dark passing to light and back again.
