So dull and dark are the November days.
The lazy mist high up the evening curled,
And now the morn quite hides in smoke and haze;
The place we occupy seems all the world.
- John Clare

lovely poem and photo.
today in Atlanta is an atypical, glorious, sunny day with a temp of about 65. I know this cannot last since, after all it is November.

Lovely to see you on line and read the poem you selected. I can become enfolded in the foggy quiet of your November - wonderful photo.

I complain about the winter but then I realize there is a lot of beauty in the season change.

Thank goodness...I was worried about you!
I complain about the cold, too, but November gives us a chance to acclimate (pun intended!) ourselves to the changing weather.

Hi Endment

The sober tone of that poem matches the beautiful photo. Will global warming rob us of the annual months of introspection? It's a feat to be instrospective in a summer skirt.

Another beautiful post, Endment. You have such a way of illuminating both the image and the words with your combinations. Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

Oh this so describes the November we have had here ... but for Thanksgiving weekend it has been miserably gray to me until I read these words. I think it's one of the things I actually like about winter: the universe seems to end at my porch for awhile, which is a very good thing. Hope you're well!

How lovely to read some lines of John Clare - do you know his 'The Shepherd's Calendar' ? It is one of my favourites - a long wonderfully descriptive poem of rural life for each month of the year. He had a very sad life though and finally died in a lunatic asylum where he had spent the last 23 years of his life.

endment, i just wanted to say again how beautiful are your photos and the words you gather with them to share. thank you! I always get a dose of serotonin and maybe endorphins (or whatever those happy-chemicals are) when I come to your blog. {grin}

I'm really missing the flowers and birds and bugs lately. November does seem dull without them!

So moody and evocative, these words and photo. Nice choice to bring us the sweetness of autumn on the East Coast.

it is nice to imagine that the internet is going to do its thing for a few days :)

sunny??? with all this fog --- I really can think of sunny!

there is fog again today - we are enclosed in a very small world.

I love the security of the fog but could use some of chancy's sunshine :)

I am slowly learning to open my eyes and find the beauty of each day.

November has been one change after another - except for the past several days of fog.

guess it is a good thing I like the fog - we have plenty of it :)

We need a lot of introspection just now... I don't worry as much about global warming as the problems with the air we breath, the water we drink and the pesticides on our food.

We had a good weekend - thanks

It is a bit of a change for me to get beyond our woods... I am amazed at the variety that surrounds me every day in this small space.

thanks for the lead on the Shepherd's Calendar

glad to share another grin with you

laura - just went out and found some blossoms --- to my amazement there are even some new buds - will post their photo as soon as I can identify them.

glad you like it - i have been thinking perhaps the fog makes it easier to explore the things just outside my window - My eyes focus closer to my chair :)

thanks for the encouragement

now - I was just thinking how I would love to take a long stroll out along LaSelva Beach :)
