If April Showers Bring May Flowers...What does October rain bring?

Yuck, October has begun with wind, rain and all around chilly conditions. Just a reminder to get oil to heat this home before it is too late, I guess. It is making me remember why I enjoyed summer: little to no clothing needed, bare feet, ice in my tea, warm nights, no need to have extra blankets, clothing, socks, etc on hand.
But I do really enjoy Autumn, as much as I may put her down. One of the best things growing up around this area is the mountains...which come along with their many trees and leaves. I am amazed every fall with the array of colors you'll find on the trees by just looking out your window. I have developed such a sense of admiration for Mother Nature. Sure she can be a bitch but hey, she's gorgeous. It is something definitely taken for granted, I have a hard time imagining a year without budding trees, lusciously full branches, then seeing them go out in a blaze of glory with their reds, yellows and oranges. Even winter trees can be pretty, snow covered and delicate looking. Ah, winter I'll hate you until you come around, then I'll fall for you all over again. Such a love-hate cycle.

Massive Attack - Teardrop (listen to it!)
Zero - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Kimdracula - Deftones
....actually, listen to them all ; )

  1. Have you ever driven down a country road in the fall, when every leaf is yellow, red, orange? When the tree branches stretch out overhead, it begins to feel as though you are inside of the color. I swear....no substances needed.
    Try it sometime.
