A fall "tang" is in the air. Anybody feeling melancholy yet? It's as if September comes and kidnaps the youthful feeling of summer, leaving a vacant, cold, empty spot where it used to reside.
I've been feeling this, "tang" for a few days now. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it's getting colder, that subtle oranges are taking over greens. Maybe it's because I no longer wake up to the sounds of birds, and watch as they nest in the trees, because they have all gone off to warmer climates. Even the children have been whisked away to school, leaving their yards in a somber solitude. The tang is very bittersweet. It is quiet, not loud. Its whisper is cool, like a cold wind blowing off of the ocean.
Anybody else feel it?
