Scratching at the surface

The air tastes of change. It’s not the falling leaves or a chillier breeze that make me listen up and put my nose into the cold morning air – there’s something else lingering outside, waiting to reveal itself. I can’t quite put my finger on it. It reminds me a lot of the feeling I […]
