It’s not just the leaves that are falling as I write this on September 8. It was announced a few minutes ago that Queen Elizabeth II has died at the age of 96. It feels like not just the end of AN era, but of two or three eras all rolled into one. However one might feel about the late Queen, those eras or what happened within them.
September 8 would also have been my mother’s 94th birthday. So I’m having kind of a weird day.
It’s also not quite Fall yet. Not just because the leaves haven’t even started to turn here in Atlanta, but because, technically, it’s not Fall yet. It won’t officially BE Fall until this giveaway hop is nearly over, as the Fall equinox will occur on September 22, 2022. But Labor Day is past and, while there’s not exactly a chill in the air here yet, it is definitely less blisteringly hot.
All of the above are hitting me in the feels in different places. Not that the coming of Fall doesn’t hit all of us in the feels in one way or another.
What does Fall mean to you?
