This time of year fills me with a sense of urgency. Summer is slipping away, the days are brief, autumn is approaching, another year is disappearing...
Green things are just beginning to sleep, which looks quite a bit like death. I believe there is a subtle anxiety in that realization which fuels our obsession with Fall and the accompanying mania:
Must. Drink. ALL. THE PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES. PICK ALL THE APPLES. WEAR ALL THE SCARVES.
However, this time of year...every year...it feels like we achieve a Vision that makes everything different.
The mundane is skewed somehow and reveals itself a new way.
Take yesterday afternoon for example...
While on the hunt for a hot chocolate on a Sunday like any Sunday, the trail shifted and it became clear the city is undoubtedly Enchanted.
Castle spires looming, mythic monoliths covered in runes and casting purple shadows, directions to secret doorways all hiding in plain site.
Go find them, Kittens.
Wishing you a Magic Monday,
