autumn redux

Autumn has arrived (again) finally.... the windows in the house are open.... quilts on the bed are pulled around my shoulders in the middle of the night.

The skies are a deeper blue.. no longer the white hot of summer. Only a few golden or reddish leaves have fallen... we still await the full spectacle.

like a moth to a flame

Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh, but Mama, that's where the fun is
I was blinded
I was blinded
I was blinded

autumnal equinox, baseball, tequila, apples-to-apples

Funeral services were held yesterday for Spc. Christopher Patton, killed in Iraq on Sept. 1. He was a 2005 graduate from the high school that Brandon attends.

I heard a statement the other day that soldiers being sent to Iraq today, were in middle school when this war began. Shameful.

summer storms

The thunderstorms have passed, but the sky is an odd pinkish color. The whole day has been odd... and the week has been one of those oh-my-god-can-we-start-this-over-because-I-can't-believe-what-just-happened fiascos.... seeming to get worse at every turn.


I need a story.... or a poem.

a summer day

A good friend sent a poem about a summer day to me today... it was beautiful and just what I needed. I hope he returns soon.
