Autumn’s fingers burnished

I keep playing these three songs, over and over:

Other music mixed in but mostly those three on repeat. And they’re all old songs! Why? Why do I keep listening to them?

Tomorrow is Halloween. I’m sad October is ending. This is my favorite month, fall my favorite season, and we had a truly lovely autumn this year. But there’s this weird sense I have, of something ending. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I feel it. Maybe it’s just Ryland. this being his last real “childhood” Halloween. Time marching on. It’s exhilarating and troubling.

Last good day of the year
