My muse flew.......... :-)

I don't seem to have much posting inspiration.

Other than cute Halloween illustrations...

Imagine that...!!!

Perhaps my muse will return tomorrow...

Whenever I say my muse has disappeared, she returns.

walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers,
And sees silver fruit upon silver trees..."

A trend...?

Thank You so much,
to the Readers who took the time
to comment on my last post.
and on another recent post.
They have been "out-of-the-usual-comfort-zone"...
And I realize, they may have been uncomfortable for some.   And that is why I am especially grateful, to 
those who commented their views.

Have you noticed the trend in blogging photography???  To photos, with what appears to be, extra color???

Above, is a photo, right out of the camera.

Here is the same photo, as I'd usually post it.  A little more light, clarity, sharpness...

 And here it is, to the "MAX", baby!


Again, "boosted" color...    ~~~    Probably fun, for a while.  But if I did too much of this, it would probably give me a headache.  ,-)

I don't want to mess around with these last 3 photos, though...

Just a beautiful evening sky, to the south west...

And through a tree, a little more to the west.  We don't get a full sunset view.  So we have to notice the sky, just previous to sunset.  Which can be lovely, also...

Halloween is coming soon!  Have to post some of the cute themed illustrations, I've found.  :-)


"When summer fades and passes, and October
comes.  We'll smell smoke then, and feel an
unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness,
swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure."

Being of 2 minds...... -sigh-

I am of two minds, these days.  

One wants to concentrate on the beauty of this Autumn Season, of this lovely month of October...


On Apple Pie, leaves changing colors in the NE, football, fires in the fireplace, the cozy-at-home feeling, etc., etc., etc. 

Soon the Frost Faeries will be painting the landscape, and old Winter will come...


And on the other hand...  I want to let bloggers know, that I am not totally unaware.  So I want to post this...


How long can we ignore

the elephant(s) in the living room???

And this elephant...

For how long........???

Can we be aware? 

And still carry on as usual, in "Pretty Blog Land"??????

Is anyone else as confused about this, as I am???????
