Equinoxes & Happy Thoughts



“Years are the voyagers of time…”  —Narrow Road to the Far North

Here is a bit of beauty from France–autumn is here, dreamy and tinged with thoughts of the passing year. The season of travellers, also, I’d say, reflecting on Basho’s Narrow Road to the Far North. Enjoy the leaves and cool weather!   RT

      Aubrey: there is something about planned parks and gardens that make them paradisical–as close as we can get to where we want to be… RT

    The whole picture works well, but I especially like the interplay between the layered red across the bottom and the sinuous red across the top.

    Not all equinoxes are equal. The one here in central Texas is so different from the one depicted in France; what color we have now in our foliage comes mostly from drought, with its predominating browns. The contrast makes yours all the more welcome.

      Steve: thanks for stopping by and for your perceptive comment–I haven’t been to central Texas yet, but if I manage to get there during autumn, I’ll keep my eyes peeled… RT
