Temperatures have dropped.
The sky is clear...the the most perfect blue.
All of the Hollow shimmers in golden sunlight.
Autumn is here, along with the its energizing magic that turns old dogs back into puppies, despite their wobbly legs and achy hips.
The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you,
but he will make a fool of himself too.
~Samuel Butler, Notebooks, 1912
