I have always loved the autumn season even when there is no such thing where I live (in the Philippines there are basically two seasons: wet and dry). I have always dreamed about wearing fall clothes and walking along a leaf-strewn path of reds and golds. I also love the idea of pumpkins and Halloweens and the insinuations of magic and the supernatural.
I have always felt a little bit luckier during this season. A lot of stories have sprung into my life at this time of year, even without the dramatic backdrop of falling leaves.
This year there are stirrings that I am not yet certain of but I can feel that my life is about to shift once again.
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
But I'd rather be here than on land
