Ode to Fall

October 12, 2009

Ah, Autumn! What is it about this time of year that makes us reflect on our lives?

Is it the gentle cooling of the Earth, gradually bringing our toasted synapses back onto the level playing field?
The changing folliage-yes, even here in Southern California!– reminding us of mortality’s ever vigilant watch on our fragile existence?

A man reverts back to his primal mammalian urges, seeking the comfort of warmth and family, fattening up for a hibernatory season.
It is time for cozy board games by the fire and the long patient stewing of thrifty cuts of beef!

psst--hey Dad, if you move green to sector H4, we can crush mom's spirit forever!

Fall is the season that ushers in our birthday season and the deliciously hectic swirl of holiday parties. Benefit shows and chilly dark nights on the road– visions of ominous brown liquids poured tall into buckets.

This?  Shucks, we just call that the lemonade of the Autumnal Equinox, people!

Wicked hangovers that are endured only by fried egg sandwiches and Advil, eased by the mercifully short days that melt into yet another chilly night.
The chance to wear that smart tweed blazer you bought so long ago–July, wasn’t it?–on a drunken thrift store jag on Haight…..

And here at CH3 basecamp, we prepare for the next campaign after a well deserved Indian Summer’s sabatical.
