In my glass: Vino-red
Mood: Happy (on vacation) & rainy Saturday night @ home & my new bud Cosmo playing with his toys.
Music: Ottmar Liebert of course and title from CD, "Three-Oh-Five"
Photo: from Ohio, at Dawes Arboretum and yes there was a quiet rain falling-thus post title.

Where has time gone--seems like just yesterday I was at Barcloud!  Here we are at another holiday season approaching--not ready for them but so glad to be off from work.  Go back on the 1st for three weeks then another two week vacation.  This is why I'm in education--a career that came to me completely by accident back in 1994!

Ok, play time, time for some dinner then more cleaning/tidying up so I can enjoy the rest of my vacation--lots to do & many errands to run as well as try and catch up with some old friends.

Back from Ohio, Somerset to be exact!  Lots of photos to upload.  Beautiful fall colors, and winding country roads full of beauty in the light of day and darkness of night.  So nice to get a true taste of fall--especially the cooler weather! I finally gave my friend the autographed CD "three-oh-five"by Ottmar Liebert and we played the CD quite a bit and thus I borrowed the title from the last song on the album and the music was perfect for the occasion.  The above barn belongs to the neighbors across the road from my friend. So many of these around that I wanted to stop and take photos of many as they just add to the beauty of the countryside.

Luz de Luz

Yep, took this the morning of 10/8 after getting out of the shower!
Luz de Luz at 55-hard to believe!!
Lines no so much but definitely noticing more dark spots. 
 I think I'll look into indulging in a facial as it's been awhile.  
As for the hair-well not yet ready to go all natural and partly because of my job.
Don't want to seem old to students I work with.  Most think I'm in my 40's 
and I kind of like that! ;-)
Although, I am liking the shorter hair and I'm ready for another hair cut!!

55 is just a number, just like ...
























Add them, divide them, subtract them, multiply them and all in all you still come up with zero or is it infinity? Either way I am blessed and thankful and ask for forgiveness for that which I have taken for granted.

Josh Groban - Awake [Live]

Awake at midnight but not this kind of awake.  Been listening/watching videos on YouTube a lot lately and this song has long been one of my favorites.  A dear, sweet soul of a person passed away Friday-he was a young 42.  R.I.P. Wilbur.

Neil Young - Harvest Moon

Have never been a big fan of Neil Young and while I love his other hit song, "Heart of Gold",  this song is sweeter to me for various reasons.  So no Harvest Moon next month while in Ohio but I'll settle for a Hunter's Moon on October 8th and should be breathtaking under a wide open country night sky.  ;-)

Favorite Color

My favorite color, my favorite month, my favorite season!  I've waited all summer long to awaken from my stupor and begin my happy dance.  Thus feeling alive and invigorated and looking forward to my upcoming trip to Ohio to get a true sense of what autumn feels like and looks like.
