Golden (and a bit of rambling).
Check out the latest Words To Shoot By for more "golden" photos.
Last week I managed to pull myself away from my obsession with The Vampire Diaries long enough to drive up to Aspen Vista and check out the last of the golden aspen. It was nice to get some fresh air and appreciate the golden leaves and sunshine.
Admittedly, I also let my imagination get a little carried away and felt a bit scared about daylight vampires kidnapping me. Or compelling me. Or maybe just ripping my throat out. There was a long moment when there was no one else around and I felt completely isolated. It was so quiet, it was a little eerie. And enjoyable too, but after watching various scenes of vampires in the woods, I couldn't help but wonder what might be wandering around our forests. Usually I just worry about mountain lions, but hey, you never know, there could be vampires out there. Or werewolves.
I know, it's silly. But that stuff gets in my head when I have been watching a show, day in and day out. And getting so invested in the characters and story lines, man, it gets emotionally draining after awhile. And that feeling of wanting to know what happens next but at the same time, never wanting it to end. I feel that way about some books as well. I can't put them down, but then when I get to the end, it feels a bit like losing a friendship. Or something like that. A bit of despair at it all being over. And that feeling of what am I supposed to do now?
(Of course that is the Big Question all around right now, but that is another story.)
Hope you are enjoying autumn wherever you are. And if you have time, watch The Vampire Diaries. It's a good one.
