August is ending and preparations begin for the future. My September clothes are out of the closet and dissipating their musky scent into the well-furnished rooms of my luxury apartment. My camera battery sits on the charger, blinking rhythmically to the pulse of electrons. Outside the leaves are changing from vibrant green to green. Plants drop seeds onto the heads of ground-dwelling insects, knocking them unconscious and allowing flying insects to have their way with them. The cold, corrosive summer fog rolls into cold late summer fog.
