There is Warmth in Rain

It has been raining and winding for the past coulple of days; darkness is setting in, and I find myself feeling more groggy in the morning. At the same time, I find warmth and beauty in this weather. The trees are still turning, and the moss is greening up. A heavy comforter on my bed insulates me in the night. I am snug.

My neighbor commissioned this special scarf from me; it is made from vintage Japanese silk and an Italian silk twill. I think the colors of the Japanese silk are so perfect for this weather; it's grey, blue, rust, brown, yellow, and more. And even though the scarf weighs almost nothing, it is incredibly warm! If only silk weren't such a fussy sew, I would use it more often!
