Happy Halloween!

The creaking of a gate, howl of an animal in a foreboding forest, shrieking wind, footsteps in the alley -- then  --

Near and far

Light glowing through colored leaves -- like stained glass.

Ready for harvest?

Big enough to make several pies (sans bug), and a large jack-o-lantern.

Fall dreams

The moon was full last night, clear and crystal where you could see detail in the craters. Silver light shone through our windows and illuminated the white rock rose blossoms in the back yard. Magical.

Today the skies are cycling bursts of rain and sunshine. Against the gray, colorful leaves glow and shimmer.

A peak time for those who like to dream....

Like Sisyphus?

During the last few weeks, these guys have constantly been scaling the windows. They slip, struggle, waggle one leg about, climb a little higher, then, finally fall to the ground. If they make it to the top, there's no reward that we can see.

Maybe it's a calling from Grasshopper Mind....

Color and light

I love fall colors like these.

After two rounds of emergency repairs, my trusty Saturn had become not so trusty. (To be fair, I'd driven her for 16 years).

So today we went shopping. And tonight there's a newcomer in the garage.

My new Honda Fit
Fun to drive. Great reviews. Excellent gas mileage. Killer audio system.

I'm psyched :)

Moon and stripe

A jet jetting off to another city, another place, while the moon looks on.

Happy weekend!

Music has always been a big part of my life.  I like how Ntozake Shange says it in her poem (excerpt):

i live in music
is this where you live?

Others' thoughts on music:

Music was my refuge.  I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. 
~Maya Angelou

Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom.  If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. 
~Charlie Parker

Music is what life sounds like. 
~Eric Olson
