surprised by joy - impatient as the wind

personal illustration

I think I finally have to accept that I am no longer waiting for summer to arrive. The patio is covered with leaves and this morning the air was cold and crisp. Although I'm dreading the long, dark winter, I have to admit I do like autumn (it looks too good not to!). Plus, with the onset of the colder weather I have the perfect excuse to finally buy the merino wristwarmers I've been hankering after, which don't seem so frivolous now... I've also treated myself to a couple of books by Eva Montanari. Her illustrations are amazing and I'm hoping the stories are as surreal as the images suggest... perfect reading for gloomy autumn evenings.
