corner view: september



c'est la rentrée, non? back to school it is with corner view. and i've been missing it! jane is back and so are most of my corner view friends, it will be great to catch up.

september is all about the light changing. it's softer, there's a bit less of it, every hour and every ray of sunshine is precious. we are grateful for warmth, but we don't take it for granted any longer. we are sad to let summer go and yet love the crispness of the air, the colour of the first red berries, the first moist smells of autumn. it may just be that this is my favourite season of the year, but i need a bit of time to embrace it.

september this year is also about happiness and wonder, about gratefulness for friends and loved ones. it's about closing chapters and opening new ones, i'll be turning forty next month. it's about plums and chanterelles, apples and pumpkins. it's about evenings on the sofa, wrapped in a blanket, with a glass of wine and a chunky new candle. it's contentment and curiosity. let's see what's waiting around the next corner.

Elizabeth said...

The photo of the plums is delicious -- reminds me of a poem by William Carlos Williams. Thanks for the corner view!

trinsch said...

your photos are precious! the colors and the texture of the plums... just stunning!

and i love your words of wisdom: september is indeed a month of new beginnings, a month of seasonal change and a time to change and reconsider.

even here where it's still hot and humid, though you made me wish for chill;y evenings wrapped in blankets and with a glass of wine. i'll settle with the wine then... ;)
