october in new england

colorful leaves

I think that if I ever have another baby and the baby is a girl, I’ll maybe name her October. It’s nice this time of year, with all the colors, the crispness in the air, the smell of wood burning stoves; you just get a very warm comforting feeling from it, a sense of richness. It won’t be long before all the trees are bare and everything is washed out and hazy with winter’s melancholy, but right now, it’s burning and blazing with fire and passion.

I like having seasons, it’s a good reminder of things.
