“A Golden Crown”
9×11 pastel on paper – Bethany Fields 2017
Cool nights, that weather that makes you put on a sweater and then shed it by 3:00. I love the sound of crows in the trees and how everyone puts pumpkins and mums on their porch. People walk a little more briskly and everyone is excited for the next Friday football game.
The kids are in full school-swing. First 6 weeks is over and they have decided whether they love or don’t-love their teachers.
The sun is setting earlier.
The light is a little longer.
The sudden realization that it is FALL and soon it will be Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas…a new Year?
I’m a little more tender towards 2017 today. Taking a day moment by moment. Flicking my son’s hair out of his eyes. Brushing my daughter’s hair until it is silky smooth.
Saying “yes” to as many things as I can.
Today is a new day and I am glad in it…
