10.7.13

Well. - It's just Monday, Oct. 7, 2013. We finally are having some rain, along with thunder and lightning - cooling off everything. It's been a steady rain all morning (now 11:30am). Absalom wanted out, but I kept him in. He's such the outdoorscat. I thought I would get SO much DONE today ... hah! Watched musician Michael Hart's and scientist George Smoot's work on music universalis - love the concept. The video is fabulous! Rhythms of the Universe Otherwise - just about time for lunch, a nap, getting things together for ESOL tonight.  The kits are all in sleepy mode - rainy days make 'em so.
Great shows --  America's Secret Slang - about how slang terms got inserted into our everyday language.  http://www.tv.com/shows/americas-secret-slang. America's Secret Slang TV show

Here We Are Again

Well now, here we are again.....
Fall....
Longer nights,
   shorter days,
      cooler air a relief from Summer's heat.

Cascading tree hair
In oranges, yellows, reds and browns,
A shower of color,
  when riding through the harvested fields,
Shorn by metal and sweat,
Leaving behind giant golden bales
   of winter fodder.

Hail, Nature's Sandman!
Ready the tired beds
  for the white quilts of Winter.
