The Arrival

It has arrived, palatable to all the senses, but most to the physical body. The weekly adventure of rising at dawn, sometimes before any light is due to arrive for hours, has presented itself. Tic-toc, we have arrived at the rhythm of the school year. Soon the cool air of the autumn with golden leaves will become evident.

I look toward the new season with excitement, but, also dread the early mornings and the forced schedules. Gone are the languid mornings, the drives through Topanga Canyon toward the ocean and late night art soirees.

Time for sleeping beauty to awake. The firelight energies of the new season with the oncoming harvest are upon us.

Yes, finally, a new school year has arrived.
Fall is my favorite season and I too am looking forward to it with excitement!
I love Greg's painting, by the way. I don't think I've seen that one.

I love this image too!! It is not a painting, Greg created it using his montage technique in Photoshop.
Cheers to the new season on all her possibilities!

Autumn - I do hope it will be a long one this year with a long soft period of cool sunny wear to enjoy the beauty of the colors variation and some rainy days to enjoy a nice cup of tea by the candle lights watching the drops sliding on the window.
