Autumn at Middle Earth


“I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew:
Of wind I sang, a wind there came and in the branches blew.
Beyond the Sun, beyond the Moon, the foam was on the Sea,
And by the strand of Ilmarin there grew a Golden Tree.

Beneath the stars of Ever-eve in Eldamar it shone,
In Eldamar beside the walls of Elven Tirion.
There long the golden leaves have grown upon the branching years,
While here beyond the Sundering Seas now fall the Elven-tears.

O Lórien! Too long I have dwelt upon this Hither Shore
And in a fading crown have twined the golden elanor.
But if of ships I now would sing, what ship would come to me,
What ship would bear me ever back across so wide a Sea?” 

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

I love life!


I love life. There's so much to learn and see all the time, and nothing nicer
 for me than to wake up, and the sky is blue.

Godbye October!


Oh, hazy month of glowing trees,—
And colors rich to charm our eyes!
Yet—not less fair than all of these
Are Mother's fragrant pumpkin pies!

~Louise Bennett Weaver and Helen Cowles LeCron, "October," 1917

This is the very charming historical (1315) village of Besalú at the province Girona - Catalonia, Spain. Visiting this wonderful place is like traveling directly into the early Middle Ages. It was a lovely painting spot during my watercolor workshop with Joseph Zbukvic organized by EPC art courses in September 2018.
