Still Learning To See

November

jrs-03216.jpg

I love this month of dark changes and contrasts, small bits of color, and getting ready for winter.

In the late afternoon yesterday clouds billowed over Hubbard Park as the kettle of Turkey Vultures once again slowly circled to roost.

And early this morning a full moon, clouds racing over it, framed through the bare limbs of the Red Maple.

Welcome, November!

  1. Ah, John–you and Henry see the beauty not just in the sunshine and summer, but in the fog and chill 🙂

    “The thinnest yellow light of November is more warming and exhilarating than any wine they tell of. The mite which November contributes becomes equal in value to the bounty of July.”
    – Henry David Thoreau

    Each season has its own beauty–and November’s is special. Emily Dickinson said:
    “November always seemed to me the Norway of the year.” And Norway is a magical place for those who “love this month of dark changes and contrasts.”

    Thanks, John–welcome November!
