highs and lows

A friend on the east coast recently told me she would love to see fall in the Pacific Northwest; I told her I've always wanted to see New England at this famous time of year.

The past couple of days I've had some real highs and lows. On the one hand, as someone on twitter said yesterday I'm guessing my emotions surrounding the rescue of the Chilean miners are similar to those felt by people at the time of the first walk on the moon. On the other hand, today is the anniversary of my paternal grandmother's death and I'm really missing her.

I hope you've had a good week. Best wishes for a relaxing weekend.

Oh, the birches, with their golden leaves jangling in the wind. Your photos send me serenely to work. Love your photos, your words and sharing your life in all of its resplendent understatement.

I know I keep saying it, but this truly is my favorite time of year. We aren't having the most spectacular trees this fall, and so your pictures are particularly welcome today!

My love to you as you remember your grandmother.

Our fall is green and a little wet! since we have very long hot days in the summer and everything becomes really dry, when fall comes the grass , trees and flowers spruce to life again. So we see more green . I love autumn and the orange, red , yellow colours that you have showed us in your photos, thanks

It is such a beautiful time of year (sometimes I think I'd take it hands down over spring). Have a wonderful weekend!

I like how you composed this post, with leaves high on branches and low on the ground, echoing your feelings.
