"To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me."

Today is officially the First Day of Autumn. It says so on my calendar. But we don't really get "autumn" around here in SE Texas. Our four seasons are Early Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and February. Today feels like Still Summer.
A warm sunny day;
A tropical bloom greets me
This first day of fall.
