October Madness

Election fever

Tempers boiling

People screaming

Our world on the brink of survival

And then there’s this…


“You’re welcome.”


“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ~L.M. Montgomery

    You just took me from all worry and sat me gently in my comfort zone. a huge thank you. btw, Every month has its treasure but October suits me best. If Thanksgiving were celebrated in October, I ‘d be satisfied to skip over the rest of the year. now, i feel a poem…Something like, “forever in October’. Thanks again!

  8. October is BEST. My daughter’s birthday is in October. ❤❤❤

    The leaves are still green here in New Mexico. But they should start changing before the end of the month.

    Mitch, it says here in my WordPress reader that you now have exactly 10,000 followers. All those lovely zeroes! Congratulations!!

  18.         *October*
                    Bright sun and cool air;
                    azure skies and pumpkin pies.
                    Leaves fall in glory.
