“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
The Fall Equinox has passed and I am absolutely thrilled to be deep in the autumn colors. This is the season where I am released from the obligations of tending to biomass. Living on acreage in W. Oregon we have our share. We have a big garden, an orchard, lawn and flower beds. It’s a place where plants like to grow.
The rains have begun, the garden is torn out, the flower beds are mulched for the winter, and the firewood is in and stacked. This frees up more time to concentrate on my artwork, writing, and music. I sing in a women’s choir and we are getting ready for our holiday show. Additionally, I play the bodhran, an Irish drum and am learning to play the tenor guitar. Travels are finished for the year. It’s good to be home.
Goodbye bugs and bees
Goodbye hot weather
Toodaloo daylight savings time
Hello darkness my old friend
Hello woodstove burning brightly
Welcome rain, welcome snow
Hello books, hello movies
Hello desk, hello studio
