This midterm election just may be the end of me. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy receiving emails from Robert Redford, Carol King, Barbara Streisand and yes, Barack Obama but I just want them to stop ASKING ME FOR MONEY! Don’t they have enough?? Okay, certainly they don’t have as much as the Koch brothers, nobody does. I just can’t take it anymore and I’ve decided that depending on what the outcome of the election is I may never visit the following states: Arkansas, Iowa, Alaska, Kentucky, Texas (that doesn’t include Austin though, I’m going there for sure) and Oklahoma, where I never had any intention of going anyway. Oh, and Idaho. Listen, I’m just in a mood.
On the bright side, it’s Fall and it’s beautiful everywhere here. The city, Water Mill, the Hudson Valley, just unbelievable beauty. A crisp and cold breeze in the air with the blue sky and the sharp sun hitting the yellow, red, purple ever-changing leaves. It’s magical and melancholy because you know it will end soon into the blistery long white winter. The seasons remind us of this constantly moving world we live in. This California girl has been moved.
Our neighbors in Water Mill invited us to a little dinner party at their house last night and just when we were about to head over all the power went out in our area. There was a small storm but it brought lots of wind. Our neighbors told us to come anyway, “we can always drink in the dark” they said and so sealed our fate as forever friends. It was a lovely time, great food and conversation and who doesn’t look better in candlelight?!
