Fall. Autumn. The season of pumpkin spice and knitted throws. Unnecessary Target runs. Crisp air. Apple pie candles.
Basically, it’s when we lose our mother-loving MINDS over a season’s arrival (Christmas soon to follow).
What is it about fall? The season strikes and we must, WE MUST, consume something pumpkin. We must lower our AC and replace all home décor with something orange. We’re whisked into a frenzy, caught in the eye of the tornado, surrounded by swirling leaves and frothy spiced lattes. We’re floating. Our fir-trimmed UGGs hover above ground. Nothing else exists except fall.
With what? You may ask. Is it the crisp fall leaves? Pumpkin spice? The rich fall colors you stubbornly wear year-round?
I fall in love with Pinterest. Pinterest is the social media equivalent to that ex who’s all bad for you, a waste of time, but every now and then, they show you attention or give you an amazingly thoughtful gift, so you think maybe they do care, maybe we can make this work, and you’re never free from their spell.
The title for this post is inspired by the Doctor Seuss story about the elephant holding a clover that he is SURE has a civilization living on it, but he’s the only one who hears them, until the entire town begins shouting in one voice, “we are here, we are here, we are here!”
I have deigned to writing this post on my cell phone. A phone, mind you, that doesn’t have any data left in it’s data plan, so I have to be connected to wifi in order to use the internet. Not exactly type on the go.
My computer is on strike. I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but it refuses. And if it does work, it suddenly forgets that it has wifi capabilities and keeps telling me to connect a broadband device.
Remember the post when I told you I’m not techy? I barely know what a broadband device is, besides it being the physical thing that gives out the Wi-Fi signal that we all connect to and steal internet from.
*sigh* I feel like I am shouting from a clover.. I am here. Anyone out there?
