Autumn Days and The Whirling Thoughts…

We got a glimpse of Autumn over the weekend, with cold weathers, strong winds, and rain, then sun, and it stayed brisk through last night. Which is hardly news, considering the snow storm over the mid-west and all other havoc around the globe.

I do love this time of year, where all foliage are slowly turning various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, some blue, orange, magenta, and brown, the visual bringing a certain calmness to my soul.

With the quiet there is much thinking going on, about the year, and the future, and all things necessary to sustain a ‘content’ life – happy is overrated. I learned that over the course of my life and I am now happy to be content. Doesn’t mean I’ve given up, but I am less stressed about finding the happiness detailed in fairy tales, and the need to have the lifestyles of the rich and famous. I am fine with who I am, and what I stand for, and have found ways to maintain a descent quality of life. I strive to deal with the challenges in a practical fashion, and avoid drama at all cost, even if I am dragged into it. I see life in a whole new way now, and the questions I often have, the answers, I realize are seldom the reassurances we’ve  needed to hear when growing up – and that is simply going to have to do.

I would love to spend a week here – mainly during the early winter, not sure why the season, but it seems the right time to be in a cottage, somewhere in England
In seeing Downton Abbey the Film this weekend, I have to say, it was great to revisit one of my favorite television series of all times. I had missed the cast, the scenery, the costumes, and the flow of an actual masterpiece
October birthstone jewelry which is wonderful in color for anyone appreciating the Fall season
Channeling my childhood, I have to say, these Harry Potter Holiday ornaments are creative to say the least.
