Mist in the Air

It is much cooler today; the mist all around is leaving damp droplets in my hair and on my cloak. The fresh smell of the coming autumn is somewhat muted, but I love rain anyway, so I am not disappointed.

Unfortunately, the rain is slowing everyone's progress today. The shapes of other travelers are vague and it seems as if I have the world to myself. Merry and Pippin sometimes still sing a few of the songs they had for the road. For myself, I like the quiet. I can hear the water dripping from the leaves and gray silence covers the land much like a blanket covers a sleeping child.

Soon I shall stop in whatever shelter I can find. But the world will still be quiet; waiting for the sunlight which will hopefully shine again tomorrow.
