Another Late Autumn (Part II)
Author's note: Please scroll down for Part I.

No wonder we humans can vicariously sense the exertion it takes to fly. At this time of year we also feel the necessity of storing energy (fat) for the stark months ahead. As my Facebook friend, Michael Thomas Merren observed: "Fall comes and we are drawn to the cozy warmth of the hearth fire and heavy meats." One friend had described her aching to fly with the migratory birds during Autumn. I replied that I felt more in tune with tunneling creatures who gathered and stored instead of migrating and who were able to rest warm and cozy below the frost line among stores of nuts and seeds, lying in beds of dried grass and down.

For us humans, as I'd described a year ago, we feel the need at this time of year to hunt for or slaughter the proteins and fat that we will need from wild game or domestic animals. It is cold enough to store meat and also cold enough for our bodies to sense the need for added fat. It is not for nothing that Thanksgiving has become a feast day for us to overeat and grow fat at the threshold of Winter. We will need it during the months to come. --Gary
