October Throws Herself Before My Feet

Yes, she does! All you have to do is gaze down at the ground and in most places you will see beautiful leaves twirling about in the breeze. Leaves of gold, crimson, purple, brown and even a few green.

Leaves in my back yard..... ash, maple and oak.

Today I'm sharing a few internet photos of glorious October and to go along with them, a song from a few years ago that is set in October and whose first line appears in my title today. I enjoy this unusual song by Irishmen Kevin May and Mick Lynch (Guggenheim Grotto) called "The Universe is Laughing". It is an acoustic song with ukelele accompaniment and some wonderful lyrics.

Fall Canopy

Here are a few of my favorite lines from the song.....
October throws herself before my feet
and the sky goes powder blue
holding her breath for me.....

And the galaxies, the galaxies are howling
The silent moon, a kick of pink and gold
and the whole damn universe is laughing
and all a boy can really do is watch a boy unfold...

  1. What a great song! Thanks for introducing it to me.

  2. What a cool song! The lyrics are really great. But what I'm loving even more is the first song on your play list, the one by Inky Callora! That's the prettiest version I've ever heard! Ok...going to look her up!
    Thanks so much and have a great weekend. Hasn't this weather been fabulous????
    Erica :)

  3. Oh what gorgeous photos and what an amazing moon shot! I can never take a moon shot like that no matter how hard I try. I also love that tree in the last pic...wow.

  4. Diane - looks to me like the leaves at your feet are making a lovely carpet. Gorgeous pictures of the most beautiful season of the year...Enjoy and have a great week-end.

  5. Las fotografias me parecen fabulosas!, la letra de la canción también, el otoño tiene mucha belleza en los colores de las hojas, es allí donde está la alegria en los ojos. En Argentina estamos en primavera, ahora esperamos las flores.

    1. Translation: The photographs I look fabulous!, The lyrics of the song also, the fall has much beauty in the colors of the leaves, is where is the joy in her eyes. In Argentina it is spring, we now expect the flowers.

      Teresita, thank you! ~~ Diane

  6. Amazing fall images! This is definitely my favorite time of year!

  7. Such a cool song! I've never heard it before. You discover so many great things from fellow bloggers :)

    Ah, sweet autumn... This whole post speaks to my very soul. This time of year is the time of reflection and introspection for me. I love everything about it even though I'm sad that Mother Nature's babies are going to sleep soon.

  8. Hey Diane ;o) I have been away from blog land, due to computer problems! This is such a beautiful post! I love the song! Take Care ;o)

  9. Beautiful pics! I love fall. The colors are fantastic. Is that a harvest moon btw?

  10. Beautiful, the moon looks particularly spectacular at this time of year, it's brightened my day seeing those colours against the sky, especially as it's been so grey today. :)

  11. There is nothing more pretty than autumn leaves - I always think its such a pity they last for such a short time. I know you can press them - but I sometimes try to keep some & I'm always disappointed when they lose their glorious glow!

  12. How beautiful the moon , and the bright golden leaves !

  13. Such a soothing post this morning. I love the music.
    Thanks for sharing...Balisha

  14. Diane,

    Have a nice week.


  15. Beautiful fall pictures and love your beautiful kitty!
