Silence will bring you back to centre."

A Glimpse of November

"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

Shades of November

"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries 
And the first white snows,

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."

                                       --Clyde Wilson

Still Pumpkin Season

Artwork by Stephanie Funke, CZT

Advice from a Pumpkin:
Be well rounded
Get plenty of sunshine
Give thanks for life's bounty
Have a thick skin
Keep growing
Be outstanding in your field
Think big

Pumpkins Galore

"When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween."
