last days of october

This was the most beautiful October I have ever seen in my city.
I really feel spoiled by warm afternoons, beautiful sunsets, gorgeous light and lush colors.
I know it's not going to last. I know the fog is creeping in.
I know the rainy season is just around the corner, but I am in love with the now, I am inspired by so many things:

I've been feasting my eyes on works by Harry Callahan,

listening to bon iver, a lot...

reading and rereading stream of consciousness poem,

loving the idea of a spontaneous detour by Alexandria.

planing a very special road trip, simply can't wait for it!
