bells chime, I know I gotta get away...

so....a friend of mine sent me this link recently, and it made my day.

in addition to renewing my hopes for the human race, it led me to pull Bjork's "Homogenic" disc out of the archives....

on headphones, that rekkid is pure bliss for me....with all props to Nile Rodgers, George Martin, Timbaaland, & Phil Spector....it may be the most perfectly produced album ever.

rock on, little achievers.

....sipping cocktails in the blue, red, & grey....

so........I was discussing with a friend recently how I've been spoiled these past weeks with a beautiful indian summer...this was not the case the last few years.

a year ago, precipitation started around mid-august, and by October, we'd enjoyed 37 days of rain....at one point, 22 in a row.

one of the true blessings of being in the AK during this season is the return of the sunset....they start re-appearing in August, after taking a summer hiatus.

the shots below are a lil' re-cap of autumn evenings.....my cup, it doth overflow....
