910. Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it. ~Anne “Ninon” de L’Enclos.

There is a harmony in autumn, and a lustre in its sky,
which through the summer is not heard or seen,
as if it could not be, as if it had not been!
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

I cannot endure to waste anything as precious
as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Autumn you fill my heart with gladness,
Take away all my sadness,
Ease my troubles,
That’s what you do.
For the morning sun in all it’s glory
Meets the day with hope and comfort too.
You fill my life with splendor,
And somehow you make it better…
~Excerpted and adapted lyrics
by Van Morrison

The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets. ~Psalm 50:1 ✝

    • Indeed we do!!! Oh, Julie, if it had been any later, I think you’d have found me calling on the phone soon and just sobbling away! Hee hee. Here indeed to a crisp and fabulously golden autumn, my friend! Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  1. So beautiful Natalie. What a lovely evening to have my service restored, after the construction workers cut the phone line to my apartment. This post is breathtakingly beautiful, and a wonderful first one to see after all my frustration. Thank you so much my friend. (((HUGS))) A.
