For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad. Edwin Way Teale
I made another batch of tomato soup today. The house smells wonderful, like that of the harvest. It will linger into tomorrow. This time of year is a time of reaping, but it is also a time for sowing - sowing thoughts and memories and soup that will last through the long, cold winter. It is a time of scattering abroad our thoughts and memories and soup to those we love.
