Blest Autumn.... - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
Blest Autumn....

It is quite likely that the shoddy that is a General Election will soon be upon us.


I offer relief.


Today, 3 October, is the day of the Honey Fair in Callington, Cornwall.  A week from today, on 10 October, the Tavistock Goosey Fair begins.  On 13 and 14 October, the Agroforestry Research Trust, Dartington, Devon, put on the programme, ‘Growing Nut Crops’; Pack Monday Fair in Sherborne begins on 15 October.  From 18 October through 21 October, Falmouth Oyster Festival will give us something to do before, on 21 October, Apple Day comes round.  Also on 20 and 21 October, the Cranborne Chase Woodfair showcases rural and forestry skills.  The 25th sees Punky Night in Hinton St George. 


These are the Permanent Things.  Seek these out and let the world wag as it wishes: ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God’, and, even as you render the bare minimum to Cæsar, you will find better riches to your account in this season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.

I haven't responded to your email, and appologize for not doing so, but I could not come up with anything that answered what was implied, without implying much, much more myself.


Fall has always been my best season, and just the other day, hearing Sandy Denny's startling version of her song "Late Novemeber" from The BBC Sessions 1971-1973, and remembering my own childhood in South Central Ontario, the smell of leaves, orange and deepest red leaves, brown crunchy walks, and the air so close nothing echoes, even a sneeze (the chills, perhaps) I missed Ontario as I've done only rarely since moving to Vancouver 17 years ago. Autumn for me was always a weighted inevitability, leaning quietly toward winter.

Not at all.

As the question was purely idle, not to say impertinent, it is perhaps best to give it a miss.

To paraphrase Mr Bogart in Casablanca, we'll always have autumn.

(How do you bear living in a rain forest with no actual seasons?)
