king november…

november brings about many thoughts….

i think of my dad who passed away in november.  i remember the golden hues of the oak trees that lined the street where he lived with my mother.  such a peaceful street.

i guess it was fitting that he died on such a beautiful november day.  he was a good man albeit stubborn and opinionated….i am like him in so many ways.  i miss him.

november leads us quietly to thanksgiving.  no hoopla.  no twinkling lights or glittered ornaments.  just family and food.  thankfulness and retrospect.  grateful for those who have been in our lives and those who still remain.

i love november for its serene presence.  the temps cool down after months of arduous heat.  the pace is slow for now….soon enough it will become frenzied with the prelude to christmas….but for now, november is king.
