November comes 
And November goes, 
With the last red berries 
And the first white snows.

With night coming early, 

And dawn coming late, 

And ice in the bucket 

And frost by the gate.

The fires burn 

And the kettles sing, 

And earth sinks to rest 

Until next spring.

–  Elizabeth Coatsworth

    Gorgeous, you really captured the best of the season so beautifully. That gray toned painting is stunning, and I love the final saying, life is a round… really beautiful post.

    What a gorgeous set of images! It makes me long for an Autumn with red and gold leaves, in spite of the dramatic, harsh beauty of the ocean I see out my windows.

    I always love your month posts. You are so elegant.
    I want to apologise for being rude the other time(twitter @Rinoker).It was really bad a behaviour.Unacceptable. I was surfing through difficult times.
    Hope you keep being a chic and fabulous New Yorker as you already are.
