Lazy day, feeling a bit down and overwhelmed. Biked to work (5 miles), biked about 9 miles at lunch with a friend, stayed at work waaaay too late, and biked home.

This song was in my head, and I was the crazy lady singing out loud:

October
And the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear
What do I care?
October
And kingdoms rise
And kingdoms fall
But you go on
And on....
