November in my life

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."
Elizabeth Lawrence

As this month of November goes crunching past, blending through,

nature's art

I take pause to give thanks for the opportunities I have to be outdoors, midst the sunshine, walking with my dog.

I contemplate the many tasks to be done. I treasure any moment that I have for peaceful moments .

Our November this year is unusual. Typically I refer to November as "the candle month".










This year we seemed to have our more grey, more coool sullies

"Looking through the window..."

in October. November has brought us glorious weather to allow for completion of the harvest.

While the days are growing shorter,

the sun wants to shine gloriously. The birds want to be atwitter.

is approaching and I look forward to the preparations with great joy.

And in this typically grey, rushed month of November, I have chosen once again to participate in Art Everyday Month. I have mainly been taking scads of photographs for using with Visual Poetry. I have decided to do a slideshow which depicts most of the creations from my first two weeks of Art Everyday Month.



Wishing you a very happy November.

We've been having a wonderful November and I am so thankful that it didn't go right into winter in October, like it seemed to want to. I'm really enjoying watching your slideshow! Love the earthiness and rusticity of them! I really love those purple (thistles? I knew what those are but I can't remember now. What are they?). I'm off to Wonders of Winterland now! Magickal blessings! Serena
