we finally found a little window to go up to the mountains for a quick little picnic.
i'm working on trimming down my to-do list, trying to liberate myself from things
i think i have to do--like learn a second language. i'd rather have time with ceej in
the autumn mountains. and i'd rather have more time to really work on projects i
truly care about. some day i might have time to learn a second language. but not today.
i'm feeling in a very poetic mood these days: whitman and dickinson in particular.
it's sort of a little tragedy that i never had a course studying either of these poets
while i've been in graduate school...and it doesn't look like it's going to happen
my last summer while i'm in oxford. i'll just have to keep my eyes peeled for the rest
of my life for whitman and/or dickinson classes i can audit some day. some day.
how is autumn where you live? i am quite surprised at how vibrant the colors have
been after a summer of drought. who knew these lovely trees had such a surprise for us?
i'm currently trying to find another day in the remainder of the week to head up for
another picnic lunch. it's just the thing to clear a crowded mind.
