It's fairly early in the morning and Jim was meditating, so the house was very, very quiet.
Then I heard the wind pushing against the window and I thought, "Fall. It's finally fall."
Our first gray day in quite a while ... so gray it's dark outside. I love this pulling into oneself that happens when it turns cold and wet.
You look for light and warmth, and you close ranks with those you truly trust. And maybe indulge in a bit of melancholy:
Time it was and what a time it was it was,
A time of innocence, a time of confidences.
Long ago it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you.
Bookends, Simon and Garfunkel
Today's Fragrance: Tolu by Ormonde Jayne. The ultimate autumn fragrance with notes of
juniper berry, orange blossom and clary sage, orchid (!), Moroccan rose and muguet, tolu,
tonka bean, golden frankincense and amber. She's a genius.
