Completing my regular running loop these days takes forever.
Why? Because it’s so breathtakingly beautiful. I have to stop every now and then just to take it all in.
The bourbon-sweet scent of fallen leaves and late crops, the soft snik-snik-snik of leaves falling on other leaves, falling to the ground like a gentle dry rain, the intoxicating tapestry of yellows, reds, oranges and browns.
My mood is made even brighter by a lovely autumnal palette of blended whiskies, a wedding anniversary gift given to celebrate more than two decades of blended lives.
Look at all those lovely hues.
What a treat.
Some of them I know, some of them I don’t. The Johnnie Walker Blue Label turns out to be like a soft puff of sweet smoke, a perfect complement to the seasonal change outside.
I’ll update on the others as we try them.
Who says autumn is the melancholy season?
