first days of autumn in elwood

While Summer held on tenaciously, Autumn had nevertheless showed up in the streets of Elwood, bringing with it that indescribable chill behind the warmth, that slight sense of loss and whimsical desire to embrace the colour and cosiness of the new season with a reticence to let go of the old.

We don't need to let go of the old to walk forward. The heat and saltiness and freedom of Summer will come with us into Autumn. We might not remember it as well during Winter but when Spring rolls around with its promises and reawakening, we will fall into the embrace of Summer as though we had never parted.
