My rhythm of life is changing. School is open and I need to slow down when I pass the two schools on my way to work. In addition, football season is upon us. Living in Green Bay, football is as essential as the air we breathe. These things happen every fall. The weather affects the rhythm of my life. The cooler temperatures and shorter days change my garden. The first frost wipes out the delicate plants, the leaves falling need to be raked and the gardens need to be prepared for winter. All expected changes.
