The Current Normal – Lazy, Crazy, Hazy, Days of Awe-tumn (with apologies to Hans Carste (composer) and Nat King Cole (singer extraordinaire)

A story on the radio today indicated that some think a person’s favourite season is determined by the season of the year in which they are born. If so, that would certainly fit this couple, as both of us were born in November and we got married in September, at the cusp of Autumn.

Awe-tumn

Summer fast fading,

leaves quickly changing colour.

Amazing Awe-tumn.

  1. Beautiful photos and beautiful poem!

    Allan. I’m utterly delighted to find out you are born in November, because so are we both, but I’m not sure if that’s the reason why I love autumn so much. I just do. What date are your Birthdays, if you are villing to share, of course! Have a good day 😀 Aiva

    1. Missed your question on our birthdays. Mine is the 9th, Patty’s is the 29th and one son was born on the 4th. All 4 family birthdays are within 6 weeks and then comes Christmas. What dates are yours? Allan

      1. Hi, Allan. Mine is the 16th and Valters is the 24th, although we share the same Birthdays month, my star sign is Scorpio and Valters is Sagittarius. It’s the same for you, guys isn’t! 😀

    1. I’m with you. Winter is neat for a while (maybe a day) and then it is like a rerun. It will be especially tough during Covid. Let us hope that a bright light illuminates our world soon and we can have hope for a better year. Stay well and thanks for reading. Allan

  2. Beautiful photos 🙂

    I was born in June but my favorite season is Autumn! I still love the warmth and beauty of Summer but nothing beats the beautiful fall colors as nature is preparing for the long slumber ahead.
    Stay well Allan!
