Time heals all...

It was as I thought, when I awoke this morning.  The sun was much less yellow, the sky darker, and the birds were all gone.  Yes, the entire world is in mourning.

I first noticed it last night when the full September harvest moon was not orange  and huge and hugging the horizon but was rather puny, white, and distant.
And the night-time stars were hazy little pinpoints--far away and cold.  It's obvious--the entire universe is grieving.

I would not doubt that autumn never turns to winter and spring does not arrive...because time itself has stopped to weep.

And without time to heal us...
