Day 261: October
I woke with a start this morning, realizing that it was already October second. Because of all the excitement about the new-found tamale-lover, I hadn't yet done my customary New Month Ritual.
So, to make up for the lateness, I decided my ritual would get right to the heart of the season. I put myself literally in the skin of October.
I reflected upon the months past and all that I imagine in the months to come... all with the smell of pumpkin and fresh, dry leaves.
