Rabbit Holes 1
Updated: Sep 27, 2020
It might have been the multiple hurricanes blowing through our part of Georgia in the last few weeks, or it might just be climate frippery, but regardless autumn has official sprung. The wind and clouds, sun and air all sing the same tune:
"Get ready for time is running out. Gather your acorns, thicken your sap, squeeze out every remaining drop of sunlight and rain that you can for the coming winter."
The birds and squirrels are frenzied, the plants introspective, the wind grabs with a little more pinch, and the morning chill whispers just so.
Time is running out. Sure, but it hasn't run out yet.
So gather your nuts, your family, and your courage.
We're gonna need it all.
