I can
almost understand

Said Bukowski about November.

Bukowski: I’m glad you noticed that, Ray!
Ray: I’m an expert in swearing, bridges and Novembers.
Bukowski: Damn, what about popcorn and buzz?
Ray: I’m a very dedicated fan of popcorn and almost untouchable by buzz. ALMOST.

Ray, you are nice today.
Much nicer than yesterday.
I mean, almost worth my attention.

Ray: Frankly, I was horrified that you forgot that I visited you yesterday…
Bukowski: Yesterday? Did you?

I wish you
With your memory.
It is November?
Senseless Hell
Of foggy sheets,
Drinking my blood.
But it’s still nice –
to live.

    What a lovely post! Enjoyed the photos! And the commentary – I agree that November’s a mixed bag, in which is my birthday, Thanksgiving (*days which culture assumes are Fun and Warm but are not always) – and of course this month the ads and shops are pushing the holidays already. It can be cognitively dissonant for those who do not feel the joy that seasonal media tells them everyone else experiences. So your post was a great reflection! 💕😊

    • thank you 🙂 glad u enjoyed the post…i agree, lots of happening in November (we do not celebrate Thanksgiving in sweden tho, but black friday is always nice haha)..its just most foggy-no-sun-ever-month here 🙂 but cool with a birthday!!

  3. Great post, as well as the shots.
    Novembers I remember used to be cold and rainy, even snowy.
    I love this one so far with lots of sunshine and beautiful colors.

    Candles, socks, books… a few of my fav things year round… except the socks. Maybe. Just Maybe. [I should change my name to suit my mood(s).]

  5. Beautiful tribute to November! Love it!

  6. The morning spot looks like a great place for inspiration, Ray. Your November doesn’t seem so bad. Of course, I’m not there. :-D. Great photos.

    An the pumpkin is so November, month of the dead, of rotting yet remembering, souling and superstition… But in a good way.

    I didn’t realize you were pals with Charlie, how cool is that?!

    Here in the states, Fika SHOULD be a law. Alas, it’s more of a suggestion for most peeps (myself included). But I am all about signing a petition to change all that!

    And lovely captures! As per usual . . . 😉

    You and Chuck seem to have a wonderful relationship. Great convo. But no sex, no coffee, no whiskey. What’s up with that? LOL

    Love the smushed jack-o-lantern.
    My thought on November (and January and February) is that I wish I could hibernate.

    I don’t know about swallowing, but is truly a month I don’t look forward too!

    The pictures are great! The “Fika” smells delicious!
