Autumn People Day 5

I have always considered myself to be an 'Autumn People'.

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth....Such are the autumn people.”             

  - Ray Bradbury 

Even though the calendar says October, it's gonna be pretty hot 
this weekend in California. We're talking 90+ degrees all up and 
down the state. So Cal may even see triple digit temps. Gah! 

This image by Regan Kubecek makes me long for the cool Autumn days.
It is called, 'October Winds', afterall. 

Yes, that's more like it! 
I colored the image with Copics in my usual bright shades of the holiday. 
I was going for a late fall sunset vibe.

Isn't she cute? In a slightly cross-eyed way?

Perfect sentiment from Ginger's House, and some TH bat border
to finish it up on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by for the 31 Days of Halloween and
the Countdown to Halloween. Links for both month long hops 
are in my sidebar. 

My new collection of glass pumpkins for this year.

I love mercury glass.

And crackle glass, too.  
Crackled mercury glass makes me all warm and cozy inside.....
