The yellows of November

Heading for the North Woods I walked out and south, and into the New York City Marathon.

I left the eastern side of the park to the runners and the crowds and the helicopters and joined the walkers and birdwatchers in the west.

It was growing chilly, and I turned home, heading upstream against the trickle of tired runners still moving down Fifth Avenue.

Cries from strangers brought smiles to their faces. The banana supply never dried up.

And today it is Monday, and the city is filled with sore legs and leaves, and the first freeze has been, and it's going to be Thanksgiving and then Christmas, and the year will have turned, one more time.


  1. Thanks for sharing the pictures with of the New York marathon and those beautiful Autumn colours,
    I love Autumn, we had our first hard frost today here as well (Glasgow)

    Have a great week Trisha

  2. I find myself pulled in two directions.I turn my eyes up, squinting against the neon colours,hoping for our monsoonal clouds...and I read the blogs of far-off friends who post autumnal pictures.

  3. Look at those 'shrooms,beautiful.

    I hate the time change in the evening.Love it in the morning.

    I am conflicted about the holidays.

    One day at a time.

  4. Lovely fall colors...we had our first light frost in Seattle last night and our weather will start closing in...time to curl up by the fireplace, with one of the kitties, a glass of wine and another read of 66 SQ feet.
