winter reds


First day of Autumn came today - it seems more like Winter to me but still a month to go until that evil season ;)

I'm cold. It's dark. It's raining stupidly outside. I didn't feel like getting out of bed, didn't feel like doing much at all. Could be a case of Winter blues.
But then I realized what this weather is really doing to me - it makes want to wear a lot of clothes and keep warm, makes me want to eat more instead of just an apple, makes me want to drink really hot drinks, makes me even want to listen to music louder (what's that about?) - I guess I simply want to suffocate the cold, forget about it, forget about the cold feet and shivers.

So everything is excess! And the colour of excess isn't blue, it's more red. Or if we go into astrological concepts, excess is Leo and Leo's colour is gold. And gold is Autumn...so there you go.

Here's an excessive song to start the week. The video is boring unless you want to stare at Fiona Apple's perfect face. But the song is one of my favourites. It's excessively fantastic.

"Shadow Boxer"

Autumn and winter do seem the time for excesses somehow...as so many of the things we overindulge in have the side-effect of keeping us warm. It makes sense to me! I also recommend a good down duvet (I was just lent one by a friend who has moved out of Denmark). Not sure if it's excessive, but it's comfortable!

called "Winter Solstice"

What gorgeously excessive sensual expressive heartbreakingly melancholic words you use...

an excessive onset of winter needs an excessive volley of emotions and words. i love what you experienced. waking up like that, strangely, makes me feel very good.

to fiona apple. i had a crsuh on her for three years. for obvious reasons.

Kim: Is that something you put under yourself or am I misunderstanding? I'm very peculiar about duvets, I only use mine when it gets really cold. Hmm comfort warm food :)

Holychaos: Oh great! I hope you get some rain soon, it's worrying when it doesn't arrive when it should. Weather has been very weird.

Niall: lol thanks, but I never noticed any of that.

Phish: Oh I'm glad I picked Fiona then - but why did your crush end? Was she mean to you? ;) Kidding, I know crushes end for no reason, just like they begin!

Miss Iyer: hehe I seem to mix astrology with everything these days. Sound a little crazy even!
