If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Five Things On A Crisp, Clear, Autumn Day

1. Taking a walk through the gardens with Pupzilla.

2. Listening to Etta James.

3. Making spicy sweet potato soup (and shrimp).

4. Sipping hot apple cider.

5. Turning back the clocks.

Hi Brigindo,
I love your photographs of the berries, the flowers and the leaves. We had our very first crisp, cool, Fall days today and yesterday, with clear blue skies, highs in the seventies, and lows in the fifties. I've come alive! I linked to your blog from my blog in my most recent post, with more about the illustration of Semele by John Duncan, which I also saw on tumblr and instantly recognized. I found a similar image of Semele in another one of John Duncan's paintings you might enjoy; and a comprehensive, short and interesting biography of the artist, which I published in my post. The Etta James was fun, and I'm glad you felt well enough to go walking with Pupzilla.

Beautiful pictures! As usual, I'm drooling as I look at pictures of your cooking:) I'm particularly fond of the shrimp, but the soup also looks amazing.
