Screamin’ Fall Winds

M-J Kelley - InkTober 2020 - Day 17 - Screamin' Fall Winds

I live on the East side of Lake Simcoe. I run down to the lake and back quite often. One of the things I check is the wind speed before I go. Some days the wind blows me right over. And especially this time of year. The winds are ‘screamin’, and the weather changes quickly.

It’s a time of rapid change, not only in the weather but in how we live our days. The light gets shorter; we have lots of outdoor chores; my workload has increased. Lots of change. But still only so many hours in the day. So some things we have to let go of to manage this change.
