It’s official. I like in a snowglobe now, except instead of snow, little pieces of plastic shaped like autumn leaves fall. It’s really beautiful right now. The wind causes leaves of yellow, orange, and red to lazily spin toward the ground like a rainbow is raining. Yeah, I could do this. Autumn is definitely not why we’re leaving autumn in retirement. Nah, that’d be winter. It makes me cranky, winter, especially because of the commute.
But autumn is beautiful outside my window RIGHT NOW.
This week I will be registering students, and I am working very hard to keep this from being a source of stress. It’s a very busy week, and of course, I have thing to do, but I’m trying to keep my eyes on the road in front of me and not get distracted. And then, all the work stays here at night, unless it’s due the next day. Look at the leaves and take a lot of deep breaths.
The writing for NaNoWriMo continues, and yes, it is a great way to get some words down, if not the best way to get some quality words down. From time to time, I’ll post excerpts.
The next time I post here, it is my hope to post a little bit about Venice. I’ve been reading up.
