you feel summer growing tired? Autumn has a foot in the door. The days are
still warm, but the nights are getting cooler. Still hardly noticeable, the
days are also getting shorter.
you feel the changing seasons? I can. Even though you don’t see it here in the
Great Lakes region, you can feel beginning of autumn's arrival on the breeze—you
can smell it.
summer of 2012 seemed long to me. Maybe it was the extremely hot summer-like weather we
experienced early on when it was still spring. As we officially say goodbye to
summer with the Labor Day holiday, I feel relief. A long deep breath escapes
from my body. I can breathe again.
fall has always been my most productive season. It’s my favorite season of all—maybe that's because I was born in autumn—it’s my spring
so-to-speak. I’m also in an unexpected writing season which I’m enjoying immensely.
Have you experienced a change of seasons where you live? What turn of
season are you experiencing in your life? What is your favorite season?
a happy and safe holiday! If you're taking a break - ENJOY!
you, me and the gatepost,
for Author, Jocelyn Green to visit The Civil War Bivouac on Monday, September 17th. I

2 A time to be born, and a
time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time
to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time
to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away
stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to
refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time
to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time
to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time
to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
I am gently reminded of the 1960’s band, The Byrds, who put these words to music…To
