The brilliant yellow umbrella that covered her golden hair did nothing to hide the bitterness on her face.

Yesterday dust and smoke filled the air and anything one touched felt gritty to the fingers. Today Mother Nature brought the cooling moisture, washing away the cruel hot summer to make way for the crisp clean air of fall. The droplets splash my face, and I smile.*


*Wishful thinking on my part. We have had an air quality alert for almost two weeks. We are getting smoke from fires in WA and OR. No rain in sight yet.

I stepped outside and felt the soft drops on my skin. There was a wonderful fragrance in the air of wet leaves and Fall.

I could not find my umbrella, and soon I was soaked to the bone.
