“Once upon a time, there was a princess named Beauty.
She fell into a bush and slept for 100 years!
Then a prince came along and gave her a kiss. Mwah, mwah, mwah!
And they lived happily ever after.”
“No! A scary monster-ghost arrived, but she wasn’t scared because the monster-ghost was in fact nice.
And then a horrible dragon came! But the dragon was actually nice, too.”
“The princess slept for yesterday years.”
Winter is just half a breath away: you can feel it.
Fighting darkness, Christmas lights are now called seasonal lights, and are hung up early. I agree.
For now, nature’s colour show is still ongoing. These photos are from a month ago, but some trees remain persistently yellow, refusing to let go of their leaves.
It seems like the yellows and oranges have lasted longer than usual this year, but maybe my perception of time is amiss. I’m trying to stay present and really notice everything. Enjoy it while it lasts.
