Round Here

Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you
The angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.
I walk in the air between the rain
Through myself and back again
Where? I don't know

lyrics by The Counting Crows


It happens every fall, this feeling of melancholia. I am not sure what triggers it. The physical experience of the changing of the seasons. I love Autumn, and yet I also see it as an end. I suppose I view Winter as a period of stagnation with Spring being a rebirth. I view Autumn and Spring as transitions and see both of them with the same sense of melancholia.

My emotions are generally kept on a very short rein. Protection Syndrome 101, I call it. Perhaps it is the combination of stifling emotions over a couple of incidents this week.

Whatever it is, it will pass. The glorious leaves will fall from the trees, the snow will fall, my life will rearrange itself into a more comfortable place and I will be singing a new tune in a few days. (Cover your ears, carrying a tune will never be in my repertoire.)

There is a fleeting beauty in autumn and its sense
of melancholy. It is good to love this feeling. It
comes slowly with the falling leaves and evaporates
in sunlight.

I tend to feel the same way about this time of the year. And it seems to get worse each year

This time is soooo hard for me. My addiction is to paraglide and in Britain this is the worst season. The wind is too strong or next to zero, almost all the thermals have gone for the winter and I am left on the ground, unable to be with the birds. Tough. Really tough. Thank god for sex and strong coffee, I say.
