Santa Ana's and unseasonable warmth.
We have Santa Ana's blowing tonight, and it has been exceptionally warm for late October in the last few days. The wind brings scents from everywhere- the forest canyon scents though faint, dry and dusty this time of year, the fast food places, someone's dryer softener, someone's scented blooming something from a few houses away or across the little channel or maybe from miles and miles away. I can't tell and they all get mixed together. Stopping to listen, feel and smell the wind is a joyous activity for me and a welcome break from a day of mostly studying.
