Well, if there is one thing that my little head cold, the chilly weather, and all the colourful leaves now wet and laying on the ground in my yard tells me… it’s that 1) you CAN’T “beat” a cold with extra quantities of wine, coffee, and cycling and 2) Fall is in full force.
I love Fall, it’s unpredictable weather and all. Yeah, I may complain that it’s too cold too early, but that’s only because I wasn’t ready to put on winter gear yet when riding my bike! But deep down, once I adjust, I love it. I loved this Saturday’s wet, dirty, and windy 45 and then Sunday’s chilly, sunny, and absolutely stunning country-side 55 out to Granville. The frosty mornings, the darker nights, the smell of wood burning here and there, the since of cheer from people as we head into the trinity of holidays with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and finally the December religious ones.
Now for your favourite little community, TSURURADIO, there’s only two ways to capture Fall that make since, photography and, of course, mixtapes. Scroll back up and you’ll see that Karin’s got the photography covered, but it’s our very own Grafista, yeah THIS Grafista, who brought the heat — well, maybe not the heat, more like the cold — with what is an absolutely lovely mixtape.
So, load this one up, cozy on in by the fire, and nurse that sore throat with some hot soup and enjoy as…
