First off, before my spaced out mind forgets, many thanks to Tengrain for highlighting my anti-Confederate-Tea Party rant on Crooks and Liars!
Second off…off the wall, that is, I know I am a Luddite in the computer age, but WTunholyF happened to my browser? It comes up without an url at the top, I can’t grab things for linking or ANYdamned NORMAL thing now. I didn’t want two Mondays this week, thanks.
Finally, to the point of this post….autumn beauty as I drove to (gasp!) an early morning dental appointment:
*The blue, blue sky with the waning crescent moon sinking into the treeline in the west.
*Frost on multi-gabled houses, the sun-sides already melting, leaving the house roof-tops two toned, white and gem-sparkly AND shiny-wet dark.
*Yellow leaves cascading like a golden waterfall off a walnut(?) tree at the roadside, so quickly and fluidly dropping straight to the ground the way a woman drops a cloak from her shoulders.
*A mother standing on a sidewalk, smart phone camera mode in hand, filming her tiny child walking 25 yards ahead on his way to school…walking there alone possibly for the first time.
*A flash of red, white, and black as the Pileated Woodpecker leaps from bird-feeder back into the cover of the firs in my backyard.
