When I drove home from work today it was already dark. It's a strange feeling. The end of summer feels like a loss. Every year I feel surprised by the onset of autumn. One would think that I'd be used to this change of light and season by now -- I've experienced it forty times. Yet it always takes me by surprise.
I wonder if this cat who roams my neighborhood likes the dark or wishes for the sun to warm his belly, so that he can nap.
