182/365 Crescent Noon

Green September
Burned to October brown
Bare November
Led to December’s frozen ground
The seasons stumbled round
Our drifting lives are bound
To a falling crescent noon

Dona, of Jeux Sans Frontiers: Another mother, disappeared for the summer, gone since June 15. I have a special place in my heart for Dona. First, we’ve lived in two of the same towns (Elgin and DC). Second, she’s the type of person who goes out of her way for others. For me, when she was visiting Elgin, she took photos of the house I lived in 20+ years ago. Then, after a Carpenters post, she sent me some bootleg. Whatta gal.

Frankly, I’ve been so overworked lately I haven’t had time to check to see if she’s blogging on her other sites.

But for her, a Carpenters song, one that only people who had their albums would know, a very not-pop number called “Crescent Noon.” One of the slowest and melancholy tunes I listened to as a kid, in all likelihood. One that I actually liked.

The good news is, Dona’s a blogger. If she’s disappeared here, I’ll very likely be able to catch her somewhere else. Eventually.

when I see how many people's blogs you get around to and are so thoughtful about I can't see how you have time to bless yourself let alone do any work or have the proverbial life....but you do and indefatigability is an excellent trait.I myself am fatally fatigable.

"Fatally fatigable..." a lovely phrase (or frase...).

I'm not getting around like I used to. Back in the people-365 days, I did well, but something's gone awry and I'm lucky to check in once a week with others. And yet, I miss these folks...

But thank you for the compliment. As you've noted, it's interesting to see how others are perceiving things...

I myself was so sad when most of the 365ers who read mine and vice versa had moved on to song blog. I couldn't wait to join...and then it did seem a little lonely.

But I say again: summer is tough.

And now I have to go find out who pk is.

and now I see pk and it all comes together. I think I have some back issues to read...
