“In Ohio seasons are theatrical.”
~from Toni Morrison’s Beloved
That’s a good way to describe it. Seasons sure aren’t very theatrical in California, but here in Utah we see a little more of nature’s theatrics.
“Each one enters like a prima donna, convinced its performance is the reason the world has people in it…. summer had been hooted offstage and autumn with its bottles of blood and gold had everybody’s attention.”
Autumn is definitely SO bold and dramatic. In fact, on the first day of school, it was already overcast and slightly cooler, even though it was still August! I’m a little sad because I don’t feel like we had a real summer–we skipped over beach days and a lot of other summer activities. But it’s hard to be sad when it’s a perfect 70 degrees outside. It’s time to trade in the swimsuit for jeans and sweaters…
p.s. My new job at Macy’s is going to be really great, I think. I am getting trained right now.
