As Autumn Departs…

This evening, I saw another tree lighting (I have been to four now!). The singers were amazing and actually harmonized unlike some of the shouting children I have seen at other tree lightings (the quality of music teachers has severely declined. Our old music teachers made us sound like a choir of angels by comparison…) I saw a holiday market (all of this was witnessed on the walk to the train), and I rode the train with a guy who called us all strippers and decidedly told us all we were trash. (Do you love it?)

As he yelled weird insults, I reflected on how autumn is coming to a close. This season, I didn’t eat a single apple. I suppose this isn’t weird for people who have braces or retainers. (Can you imagine not being able to bite into an apple?! I guess many of you can). Wild. I started to think about what I would miss from autumn and the rhythm of change. Winter is almost here. You can feel it in the damp chilly air. The way time has flown by has mesmerized me.

Was there something you missed this autumn? I mean, it isn’t too late. As for me, I think this weekend, I will buy myself one apple to calm the craving and fulfill that desire. Do you have a favorite kind?

  1. Man. That guy riding on the train. That had to be a little scary. That’s pretty aggressive commentary. I’m sorry that it happened to you. On a brighter note, it sounds like you are going to holiday concerts like I am doing holiday tea :-). I’ve had two of three holiday teas already, and will be attending a third in a couple of weeks. Channeling, my inner granny, even though I’m not there yet.😉

    1. Thank you, Kay. That is a pretty tame train ride these days. It definitely feels weirdly absurd after a day at work you are like, Really? But at least no one was stabbed. What kind of holiday tea?! That sounds amazing! Also miss holiday concerts! I am here for channeling the inner granny. There is no better way to be.
