None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

My time of year!

November gave her scented sprigs
Of Spruce and Larch and Pine...
~James Rigg, "The Progress of Queen Flora, Adorned by a Hundred Wild Flowers," Wild Flower Lyrics and Other Poems, 1897

Good morning my fair friends and followers,
Today is the first of November ... I know many people dislike the coming of autumn but I love it. I always have. I love the different shades of gold, copper, brown and yellow in the trees. Everything seems to hold a warmth that is lacking in the pastels of Spring and the brightness of Summer.
I don't know how else to explain it but this time of year sings to me and I feel myself relaxing into it.
(sigh)

I love how you used Di's image, and how you used a die cut to make the image the focal point, Cara. So cute!
