 "The wild November come at last
Beneath a veil of rain;
The night winds blows its folds aside,
Her face is full of pain.
The latest of her race, she takes
The Autumn's vacant throne:
She has but one short moon to live,
And she must live alone."
-  Richard Henry Stoddard,


I enjoy November..within its  starkness a transistion between fall and winter begin.
there is a silence  that resenates within the starkness of chilly  nights..  and shorter days..
nature begins to prepare to snuggle down in antisapation for a long winters sleep..
one can't help but to be thankful for that which has been given... and will be given again..

so with thankful hearts.. we bring in November.
