:: October days... ::

" In the entire circle of the year

there are no days so delightful

as those of a fine October,

when the trees are bare to the mild heavens

and the red leaves bestrew the road,

and you can feel the breath of winter,

morning & evening - no days so calm,

so tenderly solemn,

and with such a reverent meekness in the air."

{Alexander Smith}

Dear beloved October,

you brought your finest this year,

the world brimming with the beauty of it all.

Many walks, many sips of tea, many pages read.

The journey with Lord of the Rings filled my days

with a deep satisfaction.

A surprise trip to Seattle with my girl,

because you only turn 13 once.

Returning home refreshed and inspired,

how a few days away can realign the soul.

Days filled with glorious wonder of the

gifts of this autumn season.

Walking and observing,

capturing and savoring.

My dear, beloved October.

October is one of my favorite months and you captured it so well. AND Seattle! You were so close to me!
