Days before rain

October 18, 2012

Even when the temperatures resemble summer, California’s fall light is more autumnal than most, particularly in those hours just before sunset, when the golden slant spins particles in the air. At that honey-colored hour, I find myself unable to hurry, preferring, instead, the pace my body chooses, one careful step, then another, as if even my muscles are afraid to rush through these last days before the rains set in and darkness falls so quickly.
