The Call of Fall

Even though I’m a day late, it’s happening early so we’ll call it even. The crisp cool air, the leaves turning here and there and that feeling of culmination. For these reasons, I’m making the call for the first day of Fall to be July 24 this year on my calendar.

In previous years, this occurrence came around the beginning of August when the winds of change rolled through. But the past few years the date has moved to late July. Last year it was July 29. Alterations are inevitable in this ever-changing climate, so buckle up and brace for the ride.
