I deleted all the drafts, there were 17. it was somewhat liberating although this is the internet and nothing is ever really deleted, I know I can get them back if I want to.
It was getting silly, write a few lines, take a picture, leave it alone and the next day begin again with another few lines, some had no title, some only a few words in the page, some where just titles.

In the words of the hit:
“Ain’t that tough enough?”
In the interest of the season, the most autumnal picture I have taken so far:
