Sometimes autumn smells like
wood smoke outside, from neighbors.
|Me in Autumn 2005|
There's a chill in the air.
|My nephew Baby JJ this October 2012|
My husband J says,
"In Texas, it doesn't smell like snow.
It smells like rain."
|I was walking to the cemetery.|
by my old house, in October 2005
Our front entry way is always full, of dead brown leaves.
|Me at the cemetery October 2005|
It sometimes sounds like wind.
|My nephew Speed Racer at the pumpkin patch|
It sounds like cheers from the football games,
at the middle school, behind us.
|My twin nieces at the pumpkin patch 2012|
It sounds like children playing football in the street.
|My painted pumpkins in October 2007|
He says it tastes like pumpkin coffee, (which I don't drink).
|Left: my painted pumpkin|

I say it tastes like Halloween candy, and my birthday treat.

I used to burn Salt City Candles.
They smelled like candy corn, baked apple pie,
pumpkin spice, sugar cookies, and gingerbread.
