one of my favorite author’s
about my favorite season
as we slip from summer into autumn
august is the sunday of summer.
on the cusp of summer
walking by the river
before the season’s return.
‘just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”

“springtime is the land awakening.
the march winds are the morning yawn.”

“It is the first mild day of March:
Each minute sweeter than before…
There is a blessing in the air,
Which seems a sense of joy to yield
To the bare trees, and mountains bare,
And grass in the green field…
We from to-day, my Friend, will date
The opening of the year.
Love, now an universal birth,
From heart to heart is stealing,
From earth to man, from man to earth:
—It is the hour of feeling.’
~William Wordsworth (1770–1850), “To My Sister”

“groundhog day is like a rock concert
but the people are better behaved and a groundhog is invited.”

change is afoot
winter solstice has arrived.
“change in all things is sweet.”
‘Origin of the Spark’ – new painting by Stephanie Law,
as featured in her ‘Conjure’ exhibition
and it is time for the pumpkins to return to the garden…
‘the preciousness of life and the changes of weather and the beauty of seasons –
all those things have always sort of dazzled me.’

my favorite season begins.
“for the fall of the year is more than 3 months
bounded by and equinox and a solstice.
it is a summing up without the finality of the year’s end.”
