Okay, my final blog post about the colors of autumn. I just need to embrace the beauty of fall before it slips away.

Today was very windy, leaves swirling all about, so I thought I'd better capture a few more images on camera before the trees are bare.

As promised, I went out and snapped a few fall pictures to show the contrast of the changing seasons. Many of the trees around me are beautiful right now; it's so nice to see those blazing shades of yellow, orange and red as I'm driving about or off on a bike ride.

Twenty-four years ago yesterday I wore a white dress, white shoes, a touch of jewelry and my best smile. A nervous smile, I might add. I remember something my mother once said about sitting across the breakfast table at her husband and thinking, "Who is this man?" Sure, I knew the man I was marrying, but did I really know him? Ah, but twenty-four years later, I know him quite well!

How would you describe these flowers? Are they pink and white or are they more than that? Do they need to be more than that?

Originally, I had some photos of my workspace posted. But since someone thought my desk looked a little too neat, I decided to take a few pics of its messier status. Now, I tried to edit the original post and move some things around, but technology doesn't like me very much, so I wound up removing the whole ball of wax.

"Rows and flows of angel hair
and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,
I've looked at clouds that way."
Joni Mitchell had a nice way of describing what clouds look like. Very accurate, too, I must say. Today when I was taking my walk I decided to study some clouds and photograph them, too.
I think most of us can remember lying on the grass as a child, staring up at the clouds. We challenged one another to try to describe the shapes we saw, to find the hidden pictures. There were dragons, castles, witches, angels...or maybe nothing more than just a girl's flowing hair stretching across the sky.
I wrote a haiku about clouds once:
Clouds filter through steel
branches, unraveling threads
of sky tapestry.
What do you see in the clouds?

So, I wanted to write some humorous greeting cards the other day, but for the life of me, I just couldn't think funny. How do you say something funny on command? I can't do it, but perhaps some people can. I'm sure Jim Carrey and Robin Williams aren't funny 24 hours a day. They must have their off moments. It's great to have a script in front of you filled with funny lines, but what if you don't? We're all humans, capable of multiple emotions, so you would think we all have times when we just don't feel funny.
