Guess what came yesterday?
The wind was blowing, a cold rain was falling, and the chill of autumn was in the air for sure. It always happens like that: the season changes on a dime and you know the year is progressing. I love fall, but there is also an attendant melancholy, isn’t there?
I might be feeling that because I’m here in IA, and when I smell or feel fall here, I think about all the back-to-school days I experienced, the homecoming games and dances, the precipitously dropping temperatures as I walked to school.
I’m here in Iowa because we taped the 2100 series of LOQ beginning Sept. 3rd and wrapped last week. I’m off to do photography today for the Jan/Feb issue of Quilty and sign off on the Fall/Winter ’12 issue tomorrow! The issue will be on sale Oct. 15th and trust me: it’s even better than the first issue. You’ll see… 🙂
And when I think about a great series and a whole new slew of Quilty magazine and a shoot coming up for the show, any trace of melancholy goes right out the window. Who could be soggy with so much to be happy about??
