All for Fall!

It's beginning to feel like autumn around here. Pumpkin lattes, anyone? (They're heeeeeere!)

Virginia's ears perk up every time she hears the honking of the migrating geese as they fly overhead. I managed a couple of photos during our morning walk today.

I've just accepted lovely invitations to be Scholar Guest of Honor at Mythmoot III: Ever On (Baltimore, Maryland) and an Author Guest at ConCarolinas (Charlotte, North Carolina) in 2015. It's hard to believe, but the new year will be here before we know it!

I hope you're enjoying a great day.


Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.
- William Wordsworth, "September"

This is the time of year I always wish I lived in the States, because you guys have ALL THE PUMPKIN THINGS - and pumpkin is just not a flavour people latch onto over here. Starbucks do their pumpkin spice lattes, but that's about it for pumpkin-flavoured goodness. And it makes me so so envious...

Ha! Thanks.

If we're outside walking when the geese fly over, she stands still and cranes her neck to watch them, and then she looks at me as if to say, "Did you see that? Seriously?"

The honking of wild migrating geese is one of the most evocative sounds to my ears. I love to listen to them and can hardly wait for when they start migrating here.

Isn't it a wonderful sound? It's as if they are trumpeting in the return of fall!

I've seen one V of geese honking along overhead as well, just a couple days ago, and the first swirls of dry leaves drifting over the pavement. You can tell Virginia that they form the letter V in her honor.

Ha! I love it! (And she will, too. *g*)

Yay for Mythmoot! I submitted a proposal for a paper on "The Left Hand of Darkness" (expanded, incidentally, from one I wrote for Sci-Fi Part 2 class). Looking forward to it.
