An October country: 5

11:08 PM Posted by James Owens












October country ... that country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist, where noons go quickly and midnights stay.... That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain....

--Ray Bradbury, The October Country

"Schau zweimal, um richtig zu sehen. Schau nur einmal, um das Schöne zu sehen."
Henri Frédéric Amiel

in allem ist ein Licht und daran sollten wir uns halten und seinen Anblick, seine Wärme in uns speichern.

Danke lieber Freund!

Küsse für Dich,

Vos photos sont douces et joyeuses, colorées et lumineuses à la fois, et elles font aimer votre pays à l'automne. J'ai beaucoup aimé le texte qui les accompagne. C'est une vision un peu désabusée, mais en même temps pleine de tendresse.

cât iubesc această revărsare luxuriantă a toamnei, disperarea şi blândeţea care se ascund în aceste culori, urma timpului în toate, căldura şi tandreţea acelei perdele din prima imagine, un detaliu atât de simplu care îmi sfâşie inima...

Anne: J’ai été un fan de Ray Bradbury depuis mon enfance --- un écrivain très sentimental, il faut l‘avouer, mais qui me touche au plus profound.... Une bonne semaine!

Marty: Merci pour ton gentil commentaire (et pour le A++ !!). C’est la saison lorsque la terre se voile en soies de couleurs variées avant la départ de Persephone….

Roxana: Și -- urma timpului în toate ... mereu repetata în anul, în inima ... înțelegi ca nici o persoană ailaltă, suflet-oglindă :-)
