The colder weather is gently seeping in. In a fall more graceful than others, the trees have the time to reveal their full range unlike the last few years when the warm weather held on much longer than usual; then winter obligingly came in with a snap, chasing the leaves away abruptly, green to brown, then fast to the ground. This year’s colours are surreal. They call for gazes and long pauses, to note what will be gone in a few hours, to feel this marker of an end.
