Summer’s Sad Soldiers

Farmers around here grew a lot of sunflowers this year. And toward the end of the season, there were a lot of people standing the edges of the fields to get photos.

The thick coat of ice made everything look blurry and out of focus, an effect I hadn’t quite anticipated but that I rather liked.

We returned home from a Thanksgiving-weekend funeral through the remains of a winter storm that had slowed our travels two days earlier.

It is the season of letting go.
