the view from my window...

I noticed recently that I only blog when I am in a bummy mood. And that's no good. That makes me look like I am always sad, and that is just not the case...

Right now I am sitting at my desk, the iron and wine song on my profile is playing, my window is open just enough to feel a little breeze. The sun is shining. The sky is blue. The color of the brick of the apartment I see in the corner of my window contrasts perfectly with the bright green trees that are highlighted with a golden hue just at the top...it's that time of year... and that is just refreshing to me. The autumn air is crisp. I'm excited about going home in a couple of weeks. By then my East Tennessee mountains will be bursting with color. I always get chills as I go over the mountain just outside of Chattanooga. Going home in autumn is my favorite. Could I possibly reiterate the fact that I absolutely love autumn?!

I don't have too much more on my mind... casual thoughts of midterms and papers drift into thought, as well as plans for the summer and the upcoming year...but I'm not too worried. I'm feeling pretty relaxed. I will get my work finished as I sit in front of my window....and as for everything else... I am confident things will fall into place...

I want to paint... When midterms are over, I am going to go to ACMoore, buy some canvases, sit on my porch and paint... that sounds nice...

There. I leave you with some peaceful thoughts... I am experiencing some relaxing contentment... I encourage you all to go outside and breathe in some autumn air...
