1st october

The weather is changing here.

It's October first and as if on cue, the air seems drier, stretched thinner. The light is wavering between the heavy thickness of summer humidity but leaning towards the ether it becomes towards Christmas.

It's the little changes we have to savor in Los Angeles.

There's an autumn smell in the air, and the sun beats warm on my back.

I wonder what it'd be like to live in a place that actually gets cold.

Last year at this time I was packing, (at least mentally) ecstatic and rolling in golden waves of success, freshly graduated and looking forwards to the (one of many) trip of a lifetime!

Packing packing packing. Want to be packing. Want to be planning.
This year it's different.
I wonder what opportunities tomorrow will bring. Summer was grand. It's time to continue forward.
