Brilliant trees

"And there you stand
Making my life possible
Raise my hands up to heaven
But only you could know

My whole world stands in front of me
By the look in your eyes
By the look in your eyes
My whole life stretches in front of me
Reaching up like a flower
Leading my life back to the soil"

~David Sylvian - Brilliant Trees

Let the wild rumpus start!

Recipe for a wild rumpus:
A sunny fall afternoon
A kajillion fallen leaves
Two kids
A viking helmet
Princesses and transformers

Mix well and let the wild rumpus start!

If you haven't seen Where the Wild Things Are, what are you waiting for?

Meetings with remarkable trees

Yellow leaves fall from branches like ballerinas. I squint my eyes to blur the colours as I walk. Each morning the trees are a little more naked. The colours are fading fast from the landscape and I am not ready for winter.
