ON THE BENCH YOUTHFULLY

153I saw Youth in action on the Benches this weekend. Even the cat and the dog joined in. The Moulin Bench catered for William the Conqueror while the Youth took the softer chairs.

Autumn

My autumn will be falling leaves

serenely quiet, but stirred by breeze.

Pamella Mackinnon

I am making some Autumunal decisions about my life. I shall leave them alone for today and take a look at Autumn as an actual season. Skip the metaphors for a day. It’s a Coastal Autumn for me. With flowers and long grasses left from the wet summer. Its my second year in this Cottage so I have done a full round of seasons and can begin now to look for repetitions. The Willie Wagtail is out the front and the Kookaburras and Lorikeets in large numbers.  The Butcher bird comes first in the morning and the Black Cockatoos are still here.

march19-22 06 024I haven’t decided what I want the Autumn of my Life to be and I don’t know what Life has chosen for me. It could be the serene quiet but it might be more troppo like the hibiscus. Autumn here on the Rivers of NSW can include large hairy spiders like the one in Bilambil. If, then, I were to become metaphorical re My Autumns, It could include the pink hibsicus and the large hairy spider. Creeping up on me like a large hairy spider is my Autumn. Then again, is it opening up like the deep pink hibiscus ?

IN 2007, a snake crawled into my Autumnal peace. I can therefore include the image of Autumn slithering into my existence.  This , then is Autumn.
