It's 2014 and fashion rules cease to exist. White can be worn after
Labour Day. Summer dresses are seen in autumn. Black can now be
paired with both brown and navy. Mixing prints and metals? You
betcha. And florals are a year-round print. The dark ambiance assists
this dress in its seasonal transition. Black, the season-less colour.
It's been gloomy, cold, and raining as of late. The wind is fierce and
shakes the house. The clouds are dark and somber and there is a threat
of snow. Flocks of birds feast in the grass around my house. A pair of
majestic blue jays rest on my porch. A pheasant runs frantically through
my yard and into the forest. The birds can feel it, this cold sweeping in.
At night, my dog sits on the porch surrounded by darkness. Ears perked
back, he hears things I do not. By the light of day I see prints in the mud.
It is autumn, especially the end tail, and not the summer months that
sights of animals are frequent. They rush to secure their homes against
the advent of winter. They fill their bellies full, for soon food will be
scarce. To a former city dweller, a rural autumn is a whole new world.
