Glorious Afternoon

To sit with a dog on a hillside
on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring
– it was peace.

— Milan Kundera

Waste Not, Want Not

I cannot endure
to waste anything so precious
as autumnal sunshine
by staying in the house.

― Nathaniel Hawthorne

Silent Sunday


Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali.

He was using a dotted line.

He caught every other fish.

Steven Wright

In the past weeks, I’ve seen many beautiful photos of trees in blazing red or gold and I was the tiniest bit envious, as the autumn colours here didn’t seem half as glorious. But suddenly I realised: our trees are pointillists!

The Beauty of Gray

This is not a black and white world
To be alive
I say the colors must swirl
And I believe
That maybe today
We will all get to appreciate
The beauty of gray

– Ed Kowalczyk

Summer Passing

Sommer will end soon enough,
and childhood as well.

George R. R. Martin

Astronomically, autumn begins in three days, on the 22nd at 16:49 CET. Time for a nostalgic look back…
