Autumn is coming

Today there is the snap crisp crackle in the air, the clear bright openess of autumn coming. I like this time of year because everything feels like it is made out of coloured glass.

It is a season of new beginnings, of honeyed tones and golden hours. I have been making little resolutions. I have found a new driving instructor, started my new health regime, researched wedding things, set the wedding date and ironed curtains.

The curtains need header tape adding and hemming, but they are essentially done. This little domesticity fills me with joy.

Today there has been less joy then there should be as I am feeling quiet and still inside. I am wanting to stir up the chaos and sparkle that I usually surround myself with in order to achieve. I feel like I am waiting for something to happen.

Maybe on Sunday night I will return to researching and creating and being busy.

But tonight I am still and quiet.

I first noticed the autumnal-ness yesterday - went out the house, decided I needed a jacket, out came the cord.

When I left the office, I walked up through St James's Park, and the quality of the light once summer is over is different. Slightly more old fashioned, almost, like looking at a 35mm grain instead of summer's pixels.

Duke of York steps and Picadilly had people in scarves and coats, and there was bustle, as opposed to business. What a season.
