luster.

Standard

‘there is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky.’

-percy bysshe shelly

i’m not sure about today’s

hail, rain, snow, sun, wind, lightning, and thunder.

i suppose some could classify these as ‘luster’,

but probably not ‘harmony.’

 

 

 

autumnal tints.

Standard

“october is the month for painted leaves….

as fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall,

so the year near its setting.

october is its sunset sky; november the later twilight.’

The City of Ann Arbor Government
and the 
US National Weather Service – Detroit
issued this statement yesterday:

 

We lost 38 seconds of daylight yesterday. By the end of the month, we’ll be losing over 2 minutes each day and by the end of next month, nearly 20 minutes per week. Here’s what you can expect as you savor the waning days of Michigan’s warm season:

July: -45 minutes lost
August: -1 hour 16 minutes lost
September: -1 hour 22 minutes lost
October: -1 hour 23 minutes lost
November: -1 hour 1 minute lost

It won’t be long until you have an extra 6 hours of darkness to spend on your indoor hobbies. Have a great Monday.

i think that someone may have been very hot and had a tough monday.

mixed feelings

when walking inside from another round of snow

and being greeted by a 4th of july display

at least i have my sandals on 

with my long down coat

and i am ready for anything.

“there are certain odd times and occasions

in this strange mixed affair we call life

when a man takes his whole universe for a vast practical joke.”
