Dear Anon 12:45 p.m. I’m a total sucker for all the lead up to the hoiyadls. I say it’s never too early for decorations, even though I’m not exactly the decorating type. But if you are, go for it.Thud,I actually spent a very happy October in England. This was way back in my fancy free days when I was tripping around Europe and England. Met my parents and we did a driving tour of the Cotswolds, then went over to Wales. I ended back in Bristol, where I met up with a friend I had met traveling in Greece. Yes, it was rainy, but I’ve always liked rain, and maybe being Walnut Creek born and bred, I found it to be refreshing and atmospheric and romantic. Staying in those cosy inns–out of an Agatha Christie novel. With dinner by the fire… Well, that’s a tourist’s view.I guess if I grew up with that, it might be different.And back on my anglophile kick. Just finished reading Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman. It’s a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. And speaking of Brit lit, autumn, and Romanticism, I love the opening lines of Keats’ poem Ode to Autumn:”Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;”
