I sometimes wonder at the compulsive human fascination with time. We strap clocks to our wrists. We adorn our walls with calendars. The computer-driven universe couldn’t run without the inaudible tick, tick, tick of its internal clocks.

And would someone please explain to me why Google thinks it important to announce how many nano-seconds it took to find a million pages on how to cook zucchini. Come to think of it, why are there a million pages about cooking zucchini?

No matter.

We could throw away all those clocks this minute and still understand that we’re nearing the receding edge of summer. The sun’s hitting the tops of the trees up on the hills before six. It takes longer for the morning mist to dissipate. And the tall, gangly form of the yellow golden glow is co-habitating with those purple morning glories that be such a pest when they get into a garden.

But aren’t they beautiful together?

In any event, the botanical calendar in the Carding Academy’s front garden tells me that our new fall schedule of classes will begin soon. We’ve added one new mosaic class with Carrie Fradkin and Chloe Cooper has added a quilt design class. If you’re interested, sign up quick. These teachers always fill up fast.
