Autumn & Anticipation

Autumn has slipped beneath the doorways and settled on every surface, like a layer of dust. The first rumbles of Autumn called to me like a reprieve, following a Summer where the world seemed ready to be rid of us.

My Opinion on Opinions

It’s worth, at times, focusing on the good stuff and ignoring the bad. These times are precious little specks, and not to be over-indulged.
