Bio Note: As a senior citizen in the autumn of my life, "Fading Light" is an everyday reality.
At This Time of Life
Autumn is my mirror, daylight grows shorter, darkness expands, clouds loom heavier, and tears more threatening. Winter winds wait impatiently, slip into the cracks of night, early morning, and my joints.
