It is still really quite warm here, but the evenings are shorter, ad there is a slight nip in the air.
The days, while pleasant are fresher, less muggy.
I am enjoying the cooler days, still pleasant to be outside without jumper or coat, but not sweaty (that makes me grouchy).
My nana passed away on the equinox. She had been battling lung disease for long time, and she fought a most courageous fight. She passed peacefully with her family around her, possibly the most beautiful way she could. I am proud of my aunt and my mother for being there for her, right to the end.
Her passing was a poignant reminder that life, like the seasons, has a beginning and an end and that the passing of time changes for no one.
I look to the days ahead, to saying goodbye and celebrating her life with the rest of my family.
