Musings From A Musical Mind

Fall is that unique time of the year where all the world seems to BURST into color. From the leaves on the trees to the many new colors around in local stores – it is a season that I really enjoy. It smells good. It looks good. It's comfortable and familiar. I love pumpkins. I love everything about them. Probably why I LOVE pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin pie.

It also seems as if the world loves fall too. Everyone acts different – and I mean in a good way. Not like Christmas time, where the hustle and bustle and attitudes are a bit annoying. But in this season that brings us great colors and wonderful aromas – people genuinely seem happier and more relaxed.

Speaking of being relaxed or seeming more relaxed – I just heard on the John Tesh radio show, “Intelligence for your life” that the new color for cars this year is BROWN!! Pretty cool – especially when we consider that brown is a color associated with comfort, like coffee or chocolate.

As I sit here today in a local Starbucks – I look around me and see many examples of the colors of fall. Brown, dark green, orange and amber colors are all around me – soothing me as much as the smooth jazz and the cup of coffee I am now enjoying while writing this. Everyone here is happily engaged in conversation, laughing and smiling. Others are by themselves on their computers, looking busy and in another world. Behind me sits a couple with an electronic devise that is used to amplify the voice – and makes me pause with my fingers poised over the keys – to catch what the device is trying to say. And because it is very distracting – I try not to turn around and become obvious.

Many years ago, Greg and I were in a Shari's restaurant and Greg stopped in mid-sentence and said, “Shhhh! I hear something” When he stopped talking so would the electronic devise he was hearing just behind our booth. I kidded him and told him the 'Mother Ship' had found him or something to that effect – but he was relentless and kept stopping conversation by putting up his hand to hold me back whenever he would hear it again. When we finally left the restaurant some 30 minutes later, we walked right by the booth where the noise had come from and were clearly able to see that a gentleman sitting there was using this device to speak.

Now because I recognize the sound – but don't wish to appear rude, I have NOT turned around. Not even once – although very tempted. I was even very smooth when getting up from my table and ordering my cup of coffee, averting my eyes in that general direction and pretending that I hear and see nothing. Even when facing their table on my long walk back to my table. Greg would be so proud. I have behaved myself in public and have not made a scene. 🙂

Hope you have a wonderful fall day – with lots of color and few distractions.


God Bless

  1. Not a fan of Halloween – but as a kid I LOVED IT!!!!

  2. I also like the different colors that Fall brings. But I don’t like the raking of leaves, the colder temperature, and the consumerism of Halloween the rest of the year’s holidays. Don’t mean to sound negative.
