Days are passing with precarious speed–can you believe September is nearly gone? The weather here has almost completely lost its humidity, and in the early mornings in particular one call feel the new season tapping on her cheeks and fingertips: let me in.

We close on the house on the 8th of next month! It’s practically ours. Our banks have shaken hands on the whole deal; the website listings have that beautiful red stamp “under contract” that was always such a disappointment to me in our house hunts, but now it’s our contract that something is under. It’s hard to believe all that has transpired in the past nine days. I have gone from looking for apartments to rent to searching for floor tiles and kitchen appliances. Amazing how quickly things change. While this change is as welcome as the cooling weather, it also serves to remind me of how fragile our world is. It is good to know that in all these changes One Thing stays constant.

of my window
the ocean fits.
