#writephoto Copper


Pennies 
and rust 
and sunsets.  

Copper. 

The colors 
of the season. 

The earth 
turns it's back 
on the sun 
and begins the process 
of a winter's nap.  

Leaves crunch underfoot, 
announcing your presence 
on the trail.  

A brisk chill 
pushes you 
down the path.  

You pick up the scent 
of a campfire.  

The quiet of the morning is
disturbed only by your footfalls.  

You take in the serenity 
of the day.

I Fall For Fall


I am one to say “I don’t like Fall”.  The trees lose their leaves.  It looks like they are dying.   Then there is the approach of winter.  The cold, the snow, brrrrr!

I spent most of my life in the Northwest.  The cold and the snow were nothing to laugh about in most cases.

Now I live in Texas.  It’s a whole different world.  My BFF in Oregon has already had snow and below freezing temps.  Here, I still have to run the A/C in the afternoon.

Sooner or later the fall “feel” comes over me and I’m into it!  Look at the gorgeous colors of the gourds & pumpkins in the picture above!

I’m ready to put another blanket on the bed.  I want to break out my cozy sweaters & scarves!

I haven’t had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte this year, but I have a Starbucks Gift Card in my wallet that I’m not afraid to use!

Are you ready for Fall?
