Well, here we are, rolling into the dark season. Over the last 17 years (my god) of blogging here, I’ve gone from truly dreading it to being mostly OK with it. Medication helps a lot, of course, but so does realizing that the seasons passing are “not such an awful linear progress but instead a looping and a return.”

So here are some vibes for Fall (and don’t forget the classic vibes of September 21).

Adrian Paul Allinson (1890-1959), “Dahlias”
Eliot Hodgkin, “Undergrowth” (1941)
Caspar David Friedrich (1774–1840), “The Dreamer (Ruins of the Oybin)”
Millcreek Canyon, Tuesday night
