Wondrous Autumn

Today it is another ridiculously gorgeous Autumn day.

This morning I spent a little while writing a long poem about... well, Pantheistic feelings, I suppose. :-)

Straight afterwards I went outside to make my way to the other building where coffee and biscuits were waiting for me.  As soon as I stepped out of the building, I saw this feathered gentleman:

Life... is good. ^_^

Oh, goodness - I don't know what I'd do if I lived somewhere with rather undefined seasons! People who say, "I'd like to live somewhere where it's sunny all year round" - how? Why?!

One day, yes, you must get to a place with actual seasons. Marking the passage of time is very important - it must feel rather shiftless not to have that automatic backdrop to the year. :-(

Why that gentleman is very handsome, indeed. Did he tip his top hat and monocle toward you?

I fear he did not! He did, however, fix me with a beady glare, adjust his tail feathers and fly off into the nearest tree. I suppose that counts for something... ^_^

Ach, such a lovely gentleman to have seen!

My workplace is set in a lovely campus with huge trees and wildlife all around - I've heard woodpeckers here before but this was the first time I've actually seen one. Lovely indeed! ^_^

Mmm, cider. Days gone by.

With or without Rosie? ;-P

That's an old book isn't it?

Yep, 'Cider With Rosie' by Laurie Lee. Bunch of country folk fooling about in haystacks, from what I can remember. ;-P (GCSE English was some while ago...)

Ack, yes, what is the matter with me this morning?! I'll have to make an explanatory post later...!

I always wonder when I see movies of people making love in haystacks... erm, when I see movies with scenes of people making love in haystacks :)... if I would have been really psyched about haystack loving back then. Was it super risqué to do so, and did people ask each other "have you ever done it in a haystack?" like some rite of passage, well before cinemas and cars and the like. Apart from being a bit prickly, a haystack always looks so exposed! I wonder if there was a high rate of pitchfork injury, or being busted by a farmer!

I guess there were limited options for lust-consumed rustics in those days! ;-P

(I once had a conversation about al fresco naughtiness in which I jokingly suggested a cornfield. My hapless opponent took me seriously and mumbled plaintively, "But I have hayfever!" I can imagine that could really be a passion killer!)

I am sure some people discovered they were allergic to polar bear fur rugs and tiger skins getting up to no good in front of the fire :) In fact, how creepy is it to imagine that scene and people being okay with doing that on a dead animal with a fake head!

Eavesdrop, snoop, and sigh with yearning...

This journal is not a private diary, it is more like an occasional, imaginary column. Therefore, much of it is on public display. However, if you want to read my occasional attempts at creative writing, my Caution Elf tells me I should only show that stuff to my friends. You know what to do. :-)

NB: If you add me in an unsolicited fashion, please introduce yourself. Otherwise I will probably ignore you.
