autumn was to have started (officially) yesterday. and yet the northwest is still having hot weather. east coast is just as summery and the south and midwest are fighting the heat.
there are times when things arrive and you say, no not today. even Kissinger once remarked: i can't have a crisis today, there's no room on my schedule. he knew the futility however of trying to say no to fate.
but not everything has to happen to today. bad news can wait, for one more day.
