On the first of each month, I've been taking a picture of and recording my thoughts about the tree in my backyard. This month the tree looks bare.
Though we had a leisurely fall, one filled with many warm days, the cold has finally arrived to stay. In the last 10 days, my tree has lost all of its leaves, as have most of the trees in my corner of New Jersey. Suddenly, I can see all the bare branches against the twilight sky. Things feel cold and still.
Winter has arrived.
