Close to Cozy

(photo taken from my front stoop.  You can barely make out the base of the space needle on the left - the cloud cover ... well...covers the city)
We walked last night.  Down our hill, along the railroad tracks, towards water.  Always towards water.
We walked until summer ended and autumn came.
We said goodbye to long bright nights as we moved in a comfortable September darkness.  
We are close to cozy.
Close to having our backs to the fire.

Close to warmer chocolate and juicier wines.
