the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Golden light

I am in disbelief at how long the leaves and the color have lasted this fall. Every time I walk the dogs I keep thinking they’ll be gone, the chill or the wind will have done it all in. And then something like this pops up. There I am in the middle of the street straining to get a shot with my phone because I’ve got leashes in both hands and Coco has spotted a squirrel in a nearby yard and Chuck is trying to mark something, anything. Air. Air will do. He’ll mark the air. I’m trying to capture beauty while yelling, “SIT. SIT DOWN. SIIIIIITTTT!” I have no idea how this shot did not turn out blurry or end up being an accidental photo of my feet as my phone fell to the ground.
