People should stop and look around, down, and up.
This is now that time when early man, and more recently native tribes, began fixing and putting away food in earnest for the winter. Meat, fish, acorns, and even wood. It all depends on the tribe, of course. A plains Indian would do things differently than, say, a tribe up here.
No buffalo here, but lots of deer, elk, and so forth, fish, all manner of plants - including acorns, bay nuts, berries, the annual collecting of salt at the coast, etc. etc.
I like to clean and organize the cupboards, 'fridge, freezer, etc. at this time of the year, and prepare to hunker down and make weekly soups as it cools down, etc. Plus, we have the opportunity to put up any end-of-summer produce, stock up on basics, and so forth.
Fall's bounty. :-)
