Feeling fall

October 12, 2009

It feels like fall. Fall as in forty-something degrees, fluttery breezes, gusting winds. As in falling things.


The acorns are pretty harmless, lightweight and brittle. We do our best to dodge the hickory nuts, which make unswept walkways treacherous and give the wind some extra whack. All day and night they fall onto the roof, roll down and off. It sounds like a tiny bowling game without pins. Even from inside I can hear the metallic ding as they land on the lid of the grill, the hood of the car.

Until further notice, we’re not leaving the house without hats.

    I love how you describe the sound as “a tiny bowling game without pins”. I like the DOF in the photo.
