September 21, 2021—autumn

Imagination, Day 22

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
― John Muir

The autumnal equinox.

The Harvest Moon

Some people rejoice at the arrival of the fall season,

As the summer heat abates and the sky turns a brilliant blue

Some people despair with the arrival of autumn

Because they know it is the herald

That trumpets in the desolate winter.

I’m just happy to have another day to be here

A day to watch the flowers as they complete their cycle of blooming

A day to watch the birds chirping, eating, and bathing

A day to laugh in as I share my face with the breeze.

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at
