I missed the warmth and light of summer at 6:15 this morning. It was cold and dark as I set up my tripod. I’d had my tea, but the chill was still in the air and I wanted to snuggle back into bed. But bed was 42 miles away. So, I shot. packed up. got back in the car and cranked the heat. I have lived in this seasonal state my whole life. why am I still taken by surprise when the cool dark mornings come with autumn?
