A TALE OF URBAN SUBURBAN SURVIVAL

-autumn inspiration-

It's dusk.

I open a window and there's the familiar and fragrant smell of distant smoke wafting in with the cool air.

I hear a rustle of leaves, 
comforting as the dark and chill seep through to my bones. 
I pull my sweater tighter around my shoulders. 

This evening is peaceful, 
        yet stirs the blood. 

There's anticipation---
        the seasons have changed
  ---and immense pleasure. 

It's fall.

A time of darkening nights 
       and contemplation; 
time for gathering warmth and       loved ones close. 

There are no greater pleasures than these.
