Autumn’s faces

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.
[The Autumnal]
~John Donne, The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose

A week ago, autumn arrived for me when I slipped into flannel-lined jeans to bundle up for the Saturday morning farmers market.  Officially, I think it arrived last night, when I donned flannel pajamas and then, this morning, flipped the “Heat” switch on the thermostat to “Auto”, albeit with the temperature set quite low, just enough to take the daunting chill from the air.  I’ll turn it down again tonight for perfect sleeping temperature.
