A look at the GE fair quilt

Equinoctal frog sings mellow fruitfulness

Last Sunday evening the autumnal equinox arrived with equal hours of light and dark, reminding me of Ane Carla Rovetta’s hilarious rendition of the Native American story of the frog who brings night and day in equal measure to the world.

Easily on that, romantic Keats arises in my mind, refreshing as ever each fall: “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom friend of the maturing sun; conspiring with him how to load and bless / With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run / To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees / And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core.”

With fall hard upon us and a brisk shift in the air, we anticipate now the October event that heralds the season of celebration in Glen Ellen.
