Spent the day...

...doing routine things (Mass, shopping, then to the computer and work, work, snack, work, work) so it wasn't really until evening, en route to an elderly relative, that I appreciated the golden glory of Autumn. Auburn and brown and bright yellow leaves scattering on the pavements along with shining horse-chestnuts. A chill in the air - wore a scarf for the first time and dug cold hands into my pockets to warm them. Glowing windows make homes look welcoming in the suburban dusk, A bus trundles into sight and the driver postively enjoyed seeing people get on board appreciatively after a cold wait. Just occasionally, you get these glimpses of the great beauty of ordinary  things. Deo gratias.
