"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

The Busyness Of This Morning

“Go placidly amid the noise and haste,

 and remember what peace there may be in silence…”

From: The Desiderata of Happiness
Max Ehrman 1872 – 1945

  2. The way the morning light filters through the trees — for some reason, I’m reminded of my home in New Orleans.

  3. I love the hazy light. It seems almost autumnal. Have they started burning the leaves at the roadside?

    • Like leaf-fall, leaf burning happens every day. But most trees have no season when all their leaves are shed, it’s a continuous and simultaneous cycle of loss and renewal.
