“Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!" -Humbert Wolfe
October is a bittersweet month, as the northeast celebrates Autumn while moving inexorably towards the challenges of Winter.
The most popular photos this month were Adirondack Autumn, a glowing landscape
and Born Digital, a still life with glasses and book
My personal favorites were Ann Lee Pond (a painting created for our new kitchen by my talented husband)
and Soccer Dreams, since it represents a reconnection with my former students
You can see a slideshow of the 31 October photos here or view all of my 2009 photos to date here.
The two groups to which I contribute are 365/2009 and 2009/365.
"October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again." -Hal Borland
