Thank you, Annis. If I wasn't so exhausted I would edit this a bit. It has been a crazy hectic Tuesday... no stopping and I should've been more careful in my typing from my notebook to my blogpost.


Still, the images remain intact and the polishing will have to wait.


So glad you're doing OctPoWriMo again this year, WB.

Isn't it amazing how the sense of smell stirs so many memories?

Have a glorious autumn.

I never had the burning leaves experience...till now. The depressing cindered smell...love that description! And fires really do seem peaceful compared to the leaf-blowers. :-)

Ha ha. Speaks to us all. Well done.


We still burn...lucky us...no really...lucky! Cant stand the leaf blowers!


this sure sounds a sad loss .. hope autumn retains rest of its charm :)

Here in Georgia they are still allowed to burn leaves but it has to be on a burn approved day (not too windy I think). Of course Georgia is a very wet state and there is probably less likely of a fire where as California is beyond dry in most areas. Maybe you can come to Georgia in the sometime and enjoy all the burning leaves then. :)

Ha! I remember that too. Although, just today I smelled the smoke of someone's fireplace. I'm not sure why, since it was 85 degrees out today, but I do love that smell. That is Fall to me. ;)
