Storm in a Teacup

I am sitting here at my computer looking out the window watching the wind scatter dead leaves across our yard as I wrap my cold hands around my tea cup. Brr!

The dark gloominess of the day has really affected my work output. I started the morning out with sketching a few designs for a new project and found myself staring off into space. Needless to say I was getting nowhere fast.

October is drawing to a close and it seems the earth is exhaling it’s last breath before winter. Maybe I am also releasing, exhaling, turning inward in preparation for winter as my thoughts stray towards warm fuzzy slippers, hot apple cider, flannel sheets and all those books I’ve collected and set aside for the cold wintry nights ahead.

I’ve decided the only thing that can set things right is to take a walk and let the wind sweep the cobwebs from my brain.

Jack – o – Lantern

“Jack-o-lantern, Jack-o-lantern,
You are such a funny sight.
As you sit there by the window,
Looking out into the night.
You were once a sturdy pumpkin,
growing on a curly vine.
Now you are a Jack-o-lantern,
See your night lights shine.” – Unknown
