October is here My absolute favorite Sight, sound, taste, smell, touch... © 2010 Pamela MacCarthy When I need to escape for a minute, I get on my bike and head for the river. The river is my dope. I went late afternoon to cut some pampas grass, or as it's called here. susuki, But no silver sprouts yet! Other wild grasses, cosmos flowers, jumping grasshoppers, and a lone guitarist picking out a tune in the distance, were there ... I walked along, at the time of day when everything gets a fiery glow- I found some gnarled, dried milkweed to cut. Here are a few other things that caught my eye : © 2010 Pamela MacCarthy At Dusk © 2010 Pamela MacCarthy The Golden Underpass © 2010 Pamela MacCarthy The Golden Overpass © 2010 Pamela MacCarthy Follow The Arrow © 2010 Pamela MacCarthy Wired Autumn Leaves Cannonball Adderly, Miles Davis, Hank Jones, Sam Jones, Art Blakey "Somethin' Else" 1958 Till Next Time...
