autumnal vitality

this time of year fills me with such energy, exuberance, and inspiration...

could it be that the day of my birth is in november and my scorpio roots are ablaze with the fiery force of new life?

could it be that i am a total geek for school and always love the fresh start of a new school year?

could it be that i am like the industrious little ants in the classic story, the grasshopper and the ants?

whatever the reason, i love fall.

today i took a walk with my pup and captured a few moments of golden sunshiney november magic on the hill...

Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.

George Eliot
