above Kotor, with October storms

Today’s post is unashamedly a travel post – with a fine tree enjoying the view from high above Kotor, on the road from Cetinje, in Montenegro – “One of the most dramatic trips in Montenegro, if not the whole of Europe” [Rough Guide to Montenegro].

For those more comfortable in the virtual world, here’s a modern view of the same stunning route.

turn, turn, turn!


Farewell to summer

and sunlit alpine vistas

lazy river days.

the dreaming time fades

while busy insects hover,

autumn shades arrive.

stack wood for winter!

Kids in ancient streets, scooting

back to schools and rules.

leaves wither, even

evergreens must pass away.

old hearts with new starts.
