It's raining lightly and the sheep
are standing in the wet field, stopped
by beads of water from the sky on their
ears, their eyes, their mouths. They look
like statues breaking their trance. Alive
for the first time, they wonder, what is
this magical place where the very air
kisses you everywhere. Falling in
love with the world is like this.

It's one of my favourite months of the year, mainly because of the cold weather and cloudy/rainy days.
When we were little, these kind of days just meant mother nature wasn't happy. Like most people, we assumed the dark days were miserable and depressing, limiting playtime and getting wet, and so we grew to hate it. Somewhere along those years I found comfort in it, knowing that I wasn't alone out there in the dark.
Like early mornings, I love the quiet and serenity that fall and winter days bring. You can take the time to think or do work, so then when the next day comes, (hopefully) you'll be in the clearing.
