Autumn With Palm Trees

A  L  O  H  A !
Autumn With Palm Trees
" Such days of
 autumnal decline
 hold a strange mystery 
which adds to the gravity 
of all our moods. "
                      Charles Nodier

Mount Tamalpais
" One can't stay 
sad very long in 
such an interesting 
world, can one? "
                        L. M. Montgomery

" A computer once 
beat me at chess, 
but it was no match 
for me at kickboxing. "
                            Emo Philips


Every day is new,
though blessed routines
are finding themselves:
Coffee in morning,
mist over the water,
Pixie visiting outside,
and bringing the 
early cold back
inside in her fur.

We know how to
get to our places,
but each new turn
is a new vista.

I feel very young,
beginning again. . .

Thank You
for Visiting!
             fondly, cloudia

The first photo had me wondering if it was CA or HI. And, then Mt. Tamalpais gave me the answer. Wonderful!

Never too late for another beginning! I hope you are enjoying Marin County - is that where you're now living?
