yes, okay, i am well aware that it is december. that technically, it is not so much autumn as it is winter. that in most places, in fact, it is already snowing. but i feel a little cheated, because i haven’t gotten to stomp on any crunchy leaves and i didn’t get to re-heat turkey dinner leftovers in the middle of the night friday and i went straight from suffocating from the heat to shaking from the cold. so, i’m just going to relish the chill in the air, i am going to refuse to wear a hat outside, i am going to pretend like there are more than couple dozen shopping days until christmas, if that’s alright with you.
(which, you know, also explains the new illustration of me, circa 1982-ish, swinging on a tree.)
