October


Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter. ~Carol Bishop Hipps

Opposing delights, perhaps? (I'm a disgusting optimist!)

PS- You should read 'Travels with Charlie'- it's one of the most enchanting books I have ever read!

I knew it. I knew before coming that I'd find a fantastic thought on autumn, and I was right. Thank you.

Oh, and summer is miserable. Winter too.

I like the poetic inclination of being caught up in a pause through a reflective month or season.

polona- summers here are usually nice, too. Unlike where I grew up - hot and muggy!

lp- we need more people like you! ;)

reth- oh no, I'm predictable! I'm happy you enjoyed it and sorry to hear about those nasty seasons.

suzan- yes, that is very nice, isn't it...
