The Velocity of October 2012

I've been following the month-long writing-blogathon of my friends and fellow admin / writers of Planet Buddha here, and have been impressed by their having stuck to their guns in posting at least one post daily starting October 1.  Inspired by their energy, I tried doing the same on my own, but I've found that writing a post (at least one post, sometimes more) a day is not easy!  So my hats off to our fellow travelers!  

Going back to the topic of the month of October, by the way, where did the month go?  Where is Autumn going?  Is it dashing headlong toward Summer?  I can't seem to get a foothold on the season, and I'm not the only one who's noticed the trend. I haven't had a moment since the Autumnal Equinox to sit back, sip pumpkin latte, light some candles and incense, and enjoy the ambience of Autumn and approaching Samhain-Halloween.  Even our neighborhood is almost devoid of lights and decorations.  

I believe this sense of being unable to stop and smell the roses, as it were, is just a reflection of this time we're in, it's the Zeitgeist of our nation, and perhaps of the entire globe.  As I post the timewave graphs every three days or so, I feel the buzzing, chaotic ebb and flow of fields of all kinds of influences.  Sometimes those waves of multifarious signals cancel each other out, and communication suffers.  There's also a gnarly flu going around, which doesn't help the sense of things going all too fast for leisure and enjoyment.  Heck, nowadays when I sit on the sofa for an hour and vegetate watching an episode of Chopped, it feels like a holiday!  At least I'm learning how to enjoy "micro-vacations."  

Autumn is our favorite season, and it's going all too fast like a souped up video in fast motion. What a time. Let's all hang in there! I write this as a shout out to my friends here.  Wishing you all warmth and coziness ...
