October 1

It is October, people!


Let the Birthday Month celebrations commence.

And how am I spending the evening of October 1st, you ask?

Reading my new book.

Behold:


"That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.”


― Ray Bradbury, The October Country

I love Ray Bradbury. He is my new favorite author. ... Until he scares the pants off me with his creepy stories. Maybe then he won't be my favorite anymore - but he is for now.

I'm off to read. Happy October, ya'll!
