"Went to see a movie show
Found myself an empty row
Thought the show was just alright
Same old Saturday night
Then I made the usual stop
Coffee at the coffee shop
Friendly face nowhere in sight
Same old Saturday night"

written by Sammy Cahn and Frank Reardon.

autumn bucket list.

  1. read. a lot. maybe: Siri Hustvedt, Virginia Woolf, Zadie Smith; definitely: "Autumn" by Ali Smith
  2. bake. at least 3 times. a birthday cake, a homely bake, an apple pie or tart
  3. go for walks. often. listen to podcasts or to the leaves crunching under your feet.
  4. discover new coffeehouses. read or relocate your office.
  5. listen to my fave "autumn albums", eg. this, this and this one.

"Ich bin nicht Siddhartha, ich bin nur immer wieder auf dem Wege zu ihm [...] Man darf sich nie auf eine gefundene Wahrheit versteifen, auch nicht auf die eines Buches, denn das Suchen kann wohl gelernt werden, das Finden nicht. Aber jeden Augenblick steht dieses Wunder uns offen."

- Hermann  Hesse. Brief an Bruno Randusus, ca. 1922

sounds of summer. we transition into autumn at the end of this week, I conclude:

sounds of summer:
the little girl two doors down singing a melody from "swan lake"
polish workers chatting and laughing away while refurbishing the house next door
bees buzzing mistaking the flowery table cloth for real poppies
little birdies chirping under rooftops
woodpecker on apricot tree
the soundscape of the lido
the crunch when biting into an ice-cream cone
paper - flipping the page of your summer read
water splashing - everywhere
conversations al fresco
