old fart blog


it feels like fall today. crisp air, cool breeze and i was happy to have a sweater this morning on my walk. i love this season. the gathering of the crops. the leaves in their sunday best. being able to cuddle under a quilt at night.

my mother says that fall always made her feel safe. i guess it does me too. the pulling into the home, more time inside with family. smells of dinner in the oven.

i spent some time this morning with a friend who is going through treatment for cancer. she said she felt like the change in the air gave her back some strength. it made me think of how much work the fall was back in the day. and we chatted about how we are glad for some of our convenience and sometimes wish others didn't exist at all. both of us like indoor bathrooms and washing machines. i'm not a fan of the dishwasher or the cell phone though. and my friend dislikes atm cards, refuses to have one.

i remember the work on the farm - haying, baling, getting everything hunkered down for winter and then the long slow months blanketed in snow when the only real work was the milking. my uncle would complain of being bored and my aunt would tell him to enjoy it. smiles. i quite enjoy being bored now altho it frustrated me as a youngster - i felt the need to go, go, go all the time.

what an odd blog - i sound like an old fart.

just a big heart with warm fuzzy memories..

under the stars
We choose to write
you choose what you comprehend.
read twice and be nice
every key stroke... has a heart beat

Talking with you today and this post reminded me of something I wrote "back in the day" ... I hope you don't mind me leaving this here for you.

"Mother Nature"

Mother Nature is a strange woman to me
She just causes life
Then sets it free


She takes everything froma struggle and strife
And at the end of the day
She breathes in new life

A very difficult woman to have and to hold
She takes the young in the spring
Then in autumn, let's them go


We learn from this Lady as we pass though life
She has no true friend
And she's nobody's wife


A very strange season to try and get to know
But in the fall of our lives
We too, must let go

ok..now that my silliness is done i will say that fall is my favorite time of the year. i remember carving jack-o-lanterns and then making pumpkin pie and toasting pumpkin seeds in the oven, making piles of brightly colored fall leaves and then jumping into them. And the best was Thanksgiving Holiday when every one was thankful and counted their blessings.
