Hot Pink October

 

© 2023 Jennifer Wagner

It’s still a few weeks away from the yellow-gray of November.  And even further from here.  In the desert, the air has shifted to cooler—not 118, but now 80.  The heat is more of a hug than a grizzly’s maul.  The Valley of the Sun is not cool and dreary come autumn.  It’s a valley of a different color.  Kind color—sweet, perhaps.  And it feels more like the mountaintop.  After all, we survived summer.
