October... sigh...


So the melancholy season is upon us. I realize that many are endeared to this season, but I am not. It is not for mermaids. We crave warmth and balmy breezes, endless summer...
But, thankfully, it is still warm here and the horrid decay and decline of autumn has only just begun. Mostly I notice the shorter daylight hours, which tend to make me rather sad.
I'm only the teeniest bit blue though. I am making some lovely things and that always makes me happy.
I am thinking that an autumn like the scene above (Tissot's enchanting painting ~"The Picnic") might be rather nice. I like the languid air of it and everyone is so nicely dressed. Yes, this sort of autumn picnic would suit me quite well. I think, perhaps, I might forget winter's approach for a time were I to enjoy such an outing. I think I will gather my wrap and my tea service and a few dear friends...
Or maybe pizza and a movie. ;)

Speaking of movies, have you seen ONDINE? Interesting...and tailor made for a mermaid such as yourself!

Me neither. Time to adjust the Prozac.

When you get blue because of the lack of sunshine, come visit me. It's usually quite sunny here.

Hang in there..my bad time is the end of January into February so I get what you are going through. Take care of yourself by making lots of pretties and watching fun movies. :)
