It is November. The light weakens. Or it becomes less of a physical force, and more of an element of the spirit. Things fall off trees and begin to decay, to be absorbed back into the matrix that supports life.
The intricate structures of nature are revealed in transition. When things decay, they give up their secret form. But they don't explain themselves. They just show another view into a mystery.
The temperature in Minneapolis hit 70 on Nov. 10 this year. It is usually freezing by this time. Heavy moisture in the air provided a hazy backdrop to the out-of-season activities.
I walked along a stretch of the Minnesota River flood plain yesterday morning. There were tiny bits of green here and there despite it being November 6th in Minnesota.
