New England in the fall  Reply with quote  

I want to live where it is autumn New England forever.
Any ideas?

The air..the weather...the sky...the trees...the people and their choice of clothes...the seasonal food and drinks...the melancholy.

The trees make me proud for some reason. Such humble brilliance.

There is no place I would rather be than New England in the fall. Not Europe. Not China. Not Australia. Not Africa. Nowhere.

While raking the lawn outside the house, my mom came across a brick hidden underneath the leaves next to the doghouse. She picked it up and was shocked to see what was inscripted on the old, red brick.

It read "SAGE" in bold letters.

When she showed me a rush of anger flowed through me. Then I got nervous. Then defensive. Then curious. Then accepting. It was more of a "What the fuck" then it was a "Who the fuck?!"

This brick has been sitting outside my childhood house for many years and now I have a new paper weight for my apartment.

I confused you? Sorry about that.

Well basically...my mom discovered a brick outside of our house that was apparently made by a company named SAGE. She gave it to me today. At first I thought it was a "message" from somebody. After further speculation as to its purpose, I concluded it is just a strange coincidence.

autumn in toronto sucks, you only get about 10 days in a row of the "good" autumn weather. After that it keeps gettin really cold for a few days, then one good day in between....but global warming is really helping out.

just wait Sage, in 10 years Toronto is gonna have New England autumns, then you'll be beggin to have concerts up here.

Montreal's fall is much better than Toronto's. Montreal is old and beautifull, we've got the trees and mountains & history, Fall is much iller here. Toronto is ugly & boring as hell.

dont be sorry. I get confused easily.

I thought someone wrote Sage on a brick and through it at your house because they hate you.

ohhh

i was also thrown off by the brick

i thought it was something your mother found in the yard that you made when you were younger or something

i was like... why is he mad about that?

i get it now

PS: as for where you could live... thats a good question.. Fall is my favorite of the seasons here... summer is toooooo humid (and i hate dressing in shorts and a t-shirt...), the winter there is toooo much snow (or the Exact opposite) and it rains too much in the spring. Fall is perfect.. not hot, not cold

id recommend moving into the shenendoah valley, its really beautiful most of the year...the summers get a little hot and sticky, but fall and spring both last a pretty good while, and winter is cold but pretty. move to berryville va. and we can chill at tastee freez and red apple deli 24/7 sage!

over here, fall came late and then disappeared on me


i blame it on global warming. in ten years it'll be 70 degrees in december. and weathermen will be gloating over it, talking about the beautiful weather. good job with the predictions stupid, the world is slowly ending and you're talking about happy hot sunny days in winter. stupid.

yeah.. so maybe i'm blind to it but new york no longer has that autumn edge to it. it either disappeared or went into hiding. i don't even see pretty leaves. everything's hurdling into extremes and the transition stage is getting shorter and shorter. i need my city autumn back. spring sucks anyway.
