The Winds of Summer

My friend Jasmine and I walked to Creamer's Field one Friday night. We only had an hour and my camera was about to loose its charge, so we had to hurry.  These were the last pictures we took of summer.  I would have liked to have stayed longer.  I love the feel of a cool wind running through the trees.
Have a good weekend!

For when November Comes

The snow's here now to stay.  The layer is thin on the ground like a sheet, and the trees look like they've been dipped in syrup and then rolled in powered sugar.  I am really looking forward to the next few months with my birthday and Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I love the holiday cheer and the purchasing of presents, and trying to keep all the gifts a surprise.   This will be my snow post, and then I will try to use up all the pictures I took over the summer.  I'm afraid I did a very bad job of staying caught up. 

 Have a good week!

Life inside a music box ain't easy
The mallets hit the gears that are always turning
And everyone inside the mechanism is yearning to get out
And sing another melody completely
So different from the one they're always singing
I close my eyes and think that I have found me
But then I feel mortality surround me
I want to sing another melody
So different from the one I always sing.
-Regina Spektor, Music Box

Even though these pictures aren't of a music box, they remind me of this song.  The reflections are like a pattern that keeps going and going, without any breaks or variation.  It's almost worrying.

Birch Hill Part 2

Here are the rest of my Birch Hill photos.  It's strange how in such a short time, the world looks completely different!
The leaves have now all fallen off the trees and the smell of winter is getting stronger.  It's a sweet smell, though.  I'm looking forward, just a little, to the coming snow.
Last night at youth group, the northern lights were out in all their splendor, dipping and twisting and growing and shrinking.  Their green swirls made me want to just fly up and dance with them.  I wanted to ice skate down their slopes or wrap myself in them and wear them like a dress.  Thank you, God for making the northern lights!
Now a full and lovely Sunday awaits me.  I will probably sew and watch Lion King.  Have a wonderful day!
