From a Crab's Perspective

Once again the summer zipped by without warning. How does that happen?

All the plans I had for hiking, camping, fishing... kaput! Of course it didn't help matters that I had unexpected abdominal surgery in June, or that Doug had to have surgery himself just a couple of weeks ago. So both of us have been set back.

I guess that is to be expected when you get to retirement age. Even though I'm not quite there yet, I might as well be. I feel as though I am entering the September of My Life this year. I am starting to slow down. In some ways that is a good thing. There comes a point where you have to realize you just can't do the things you used to take for granted.

September has always been an important month to me... a nostalgic month. My late husband and I were married on Sept. 1, 2001, and on Sept. 1, 1989 I had a significant UFO sighting near Delta, Colo. My late husband made his transition on Sept. 12, 2008, and it was Sept. 5 of that year when I discovered Pagosa Springs, Colo., and the seed was planted for me to relocate here.

This September is like a lot of other Septembers that I remember in Colorado. The deep blue skies, the turning of the leaves, the cool feeling of autumn in the nippy air, the scent of the pines... You want summer to go on and on... but you know that eventually (and soon!) things are going to change.

I am looking ahead at change, longing for it in some ways. But for the moment I am content just to let September come and go. It is only a matter of days before the frost will bring my vegetable garden to its end. My furnace will not go on until at least the first of October, even if I have to suffer a few cold mornings. It's a reluctance to let go, but also a time of reflection and looking toward rest... and peace.
