The weather is turning. The mornings are cool, and the air has started to dry out. The air is heavy with the smoke of burning rice stalks and ripening pears. My mind turns toward the darkening of the year, and I find that my rituals bend to match.
I am moving from my recent focus on creams and light scents, to soaps and spicy scents. Mitchell's Woolfat and Irisch Moos are my shaves of choice, with fewer gaps filled by Truefitt and Hill cream, and my post-shave ritual is all about Valcan skin cream...warm, nourishing and spicy, like the best Autumn food.
In other words, things move and change as they always do.
Oh, and my son is due next month...what a world we do live in.
