The November image in my 2014 calendar (above) is from a foggy morning the previous year, actually in late October, when D was still living up on the top floor of his building. Where October's image was bright with fall leaves, November's is more moody, appropriate to the diminishing light and fading landscape. A transitional time, between the radiant, busy days of autumn and the festive, busy holiday season. A time then to rest and turn inward, no bright and shiny things around to catch our eyes. (Well, save the TV and the internet...)
Alas, weekdays will not be so restful as the workload piles on this time of year, our clients all needing to spend their budget with us before the end of the year. But maybe seeing this calendar image every day for the next 30 days will inspire me to stop every once in awhile, rest a bit in the quiet dullness of November.
