harbingers of fall

the days are warm and the nights are cool now.  autumn is the prettiest time of year here in the upper midwest. my husband’s favorite time of year.  but i have a more complicated relationship with fall–the threat of so many months of deep cold, and early darkness weighs on me. i know it is not very zen of me, but I wonder, if the buddha had grown up in minnesota, whether a little bit of worrying about the future, putting up some firewood and root vegetables, wouldn’t have been considered a path to enlightenment.
