welcome autumn



















































































the changes can be seen
and felt,
the days are shorter,
air crisper,
rain seems wetter,
the swans are
nastier.
autumn arrived in
a bit of a mood.
it is pouring
rain now.
i am listening
to this version
of
welcome autumn.

tea and a book


















this book caught my
attention at the library.
a fascinating glimpse
into a different
art world of great discoveries,
meticulous research,
amazing restorations,
fakes and high prices
for paintings!
the author has an
interesting site here.

100 years




















































































































a better day could not
have been wished for
to celebrate 100
years of the
knesseth israel synagogue
in the junction.
a street party was held
with tours of the synagogue.
there were games, activities
for children and
a deli truck offering
food.
a choir of university
students and a klezmer band
provided music.
i could not
resist the cookies.

the stalls were
overflowing
with colourful
local produce.

and vegetables
to chose from.
as always we
came home with
too much.
