The cold nights herald summer’s ending.  The monarch emerging in August will soon be heading for a forest in Michoacán.  The nightly chorus of crickets and katydids is growing quieter.  Soon the nights will be silent except of the hum of cars on the interstate and the occasional itinerant screech owl.  There is a beautiful sadness in the waning of summer.
