For dinner, comfort foods and comfort people and music that makes feelings bigger without changing them. I made a drink with bourbon, allspice, and orange, and it was perfect. We drank it in cut crystal cocktail glasses inherited from my mom's family, fancier than I usually use.
I feel peaceful and nostalgic and replete and lonely, all in the best way. I long for summer and I long for autumn, one wistful and one anticipatory, both a delight. Life is so full.
