here’s lookin’ at fall
Roasted pumpkin! Overripe tomatoes! Blackberries!
Fishermen sweaters; scarves and boots!
At Terrain, there are wondrous things for Autumn:
This tea towel.
Gorgeous knives for pumpkin, cheddar, apples, etc.
For cultivating new crops.
For rolling pastry.
For warm drinks.
For chilly nights.
For cool soirees.
Tomorrow, I am going to stock up some tomatoes and make hoards of mayonnaisey sandwiches on rye, with pickles and sharp cheddar. Celebrate those tomatoes, people!
Autumn will start in earnest, soon, and meanwhile I will enjoy the shortening days and watch French films from the ’70s (Claire’s Knee, full of dappled-light, gold & blue, silk shirts & trousers), and look wistfully upon my camel sweater.
