It’s another cold morning with temperature at 1F which is much lower than normal late Sept. The breakfast has been sitting on the table for quite a while, but my boy didn’t get up till now. The school is adapting hybrid learning mode, today his group will take classes from home. The first class will start in 2 minutes, he definitely knew this. After pulling up clothes, he jumps out of bed, runs directly to his PC station.
He takes class, I go out for a walk. The crisp air hit on my face and hands, I am feeling the chilly air of winter even the winter is 2 months away. Of the four seasons, offically today is the first day of autumn, winter is too far to be thought about.
The foliage from that big maple tree at the corner of the Park intersection began changing their color last week. With slightly yellow and red in green, the color is mottled. When I overlook the thinner shrubs and see through the gapes in between old maple tree’s leaves, my eyes are stunned. The lower sky above the spacious xxx park’s turf is completely occupied by the white mist. like a whole piece of gigantic fallen cloud, the mist hovers there, creats a fairy world, absolutely magic and beautiful.
Subconsciously, I look around my feet. I see the grass being covered with a thin layer of white frost, we just had a frost night. I slow down my pace, walk to the world gently, avoiding waking the elves in the misty white.
