i LOVE FALL.
i love slightly grey skies, slightly shorter days, fresh apples and straw. leaves changing, crisp air pinching the corners of my cheeks and nose as i walk to school...this is purely an east coast influence. if i did not grow up watching skies darken, baskets of apples rest in stands on the side of the road, and have labor day signal the beginning of school & renewal of learning, i probably would be like every other Californian: unobsessed.
the week after labor day i craved a new book. to crack the binding and soften the pages with the
oils of my fingertips.
to open a new pen & see my words fill the very first page of a new spiral notebook.
i wish for cooler skies and sweaters and pants.
i have been begging the skies for precipitation.
i can't help it. i miss autumn. real autumn. not "California kinda weird cool warm Santa Ana winds" fakey Autumn.
i give Logan UT honorable mention for fall. the fall of 2007- albeit the worst semester of my adult life- it was a beautiful transition into winter. the slowly cooled and darkened until Christmas & the season of lights.
oh autumn. i love you. miss you. i'm glad that some where on the globe people get to enjoy you. *sigh*
the clouds outside my window are giving me false hope for rain.
if i beg brad do you think he'll take me to Boston instead of hawaii for our 1st year anniversary next year?
