The Mulberry Tree
Vincent van Gogh
September always feels like the beginning of the new year to me. All the frivolity of summer is over, and the real business begins. The children head back to school with their fresh bouquets of newly sharpened pencils, and everyone goes shopping for a new wardrobe -- or at least a new pair of shoes. What is fall without a new pair of fall shoes? As soon as I'm feeling better, I'm off to buy a new pair of shoes too. My shoes are increasingly becoming more utilitarian, and less decorative. But first, I'm going back to bed to get rid of this miserable cold. Have a wonderful day, everyone.
