An Unexpected Harvest Festival

I feel compelled to mark the passage of time, the change of the season. I blame my Catholic upbringing: the colored robes that changed through the year, the holidays and saint's days, the counted days during Lent and Advent. They instilled me with a need to nod to the present with old fashioned, if not somewhat ancient, feeling ritual.

So when I woke up on Sunday and remember it was the fall equinox, I scrambled to find a way to acknowledge the day. "We have to make an Autumnal Feast," I told Gus. And because he has known me long enough to know when I'm not joking (even when I'm talking like a hobbit), he agreed.

So while the day faded a bit earlier than the day before, and the rain clouds filed in to oversee the city again, we hid inside our little cave of an apartment and made this meal.
