October Arrives!

Around the blog-o-sphere this morning I see bunches of blogs greeting October with elation! It seems everyone loves October for myriad reasons, culminating with the most sacred Samhain observances (Halloween).

Even as I type these words on this first day of October, I can hear a flock of crows cawing their messages to each other not far away. With the trees turning, there is that frisson of excitement, that unnameable sense of mystery, myth and wonder.

"Listen!  the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!"
-  Humbert Wolfe

Here's wishing a wish of October beauty for everyone.  Bright Blessings!

I dearly love autumn and October is my favorite month out of the year.

I don't belong to those loving October but I have to admit that November is even worse :-)

Already below 32 here now and it will keep on falling tonight I'm afraid.

Have a great day!

And what a beautiful day it was. Although it almost hit 80 here, it didn't have that suffocating feel of the summer sun. Happy October to you and yours. I am more than ready for it.
