i found these from Han over on Infinitesimal Thoughts and thought it would be fun to do some of them as we move into September. Of course, that doesn’t start til tomorrow, but I thought I’d post the list today in case someone else wants to use them. (Ok, today is the 1st – wrote this yesterday. Sorry.)

Today, i feel like i am just finding my way through the days and weeks ahead of me – if that makes sense. i don’t feel sad or miserable, i feel – competent. Skillful. Lot of challenges ahead of me, but i feel like i can negotiate them.
MP bought me a stainless steel collar. It’s to wear to events we may go to in the future. It’s heavy – he had me try it on – and can only be opened and closed with an allen wrench.
It’s so heavy that even after i took it off, i could still feel it weighing on my skin for a little while.
It is September 1st now and i guess i should do the first prompt. (Not guaranteeing i’ll keep up with this, but we’ll see.)
The best part of fall… is not having to still wear summer clothes, because I’m tired of everything i own after wearing them all summer. Being comfortably cool. And pretty leaves.
Of course none of that makes up for knowing that winter is on the way. Nope. But i’ll try to live in the moment and enjoy fall for what it is. I’ll try not to view it as simply a harbinger of the bitter cold that dismays me.
