here come the blues...

i admire folks who can love autumn.

when summer ends, i take a deep breath and start counting the hours of sunlight that disappear. i realize that by thanksgiving, i'm probably going to be something of a wreck.

on my little corner of the east coast, we're coming to the end of the first officially chilly week, and all i want to do is hide in a cave and cry. no amount of hot cider, butternut squash, specialty seasonal coffee drink, or pumpkin muffins (not that i like pumpkin muffins...) will change that.

yes, the leaves are beautiful, but soon they will be gone...and i miss being surrounded by green.

yeah, the "holidays" are kinda sorta something to look forward to. but...eh.

come ooooon, spring...

some folks left some really cool suggestions on my facebook wall, if you're interested.

hang in there...although it feels like forever, it's always over before i/we know it. :-)

I have to say the older I get, the more connected I feel to autumn & winter emotionally... I'm thankful for that. Here's hoping that the two seasons aren't too hard on you, lady...
