The author, Kate Chopin, once wrote:
I wonder if anyone else has an ear so tuned and sharpened as I have, to detect the music, not of the spheres, but of earth, subtleties of major and minor chord that the wind strikes upon the tree branches. Have you ever heard the earth breathe?
I would encourage all of you to enjoy the last days of autumn’s warmth and the sun on your face. Already there are days when the wind is too chilly to stay outside very long. Parts of the country have had snow and will have more soon. I’m not ready to come in yet, but I don’t think I have much choice about it.
Surprisingly, I took this picture on the way home from work. As I watched the sunset unfold, I pulled into a school parking lot and grabbed my camera. A sunset like this is also a song of the universe.
