It was windy in Sacramento yesterday, releasing leaves from trees in an early sign that fall was coming. One leaf was caught in the wires of a baseball backstop. I imagine it will have more company today.
I look forward to the change of seasons, especially fall. The air becomes crisp and shadows grow long in the afternoon. Unfortunately, the news of the day continues to be tragic to a point where it is difficult to ignore events that reinforce this sense of helplessness in our abilities to change life for the better. We must not let ourselves become leaves caught in a wire backstop.
