autumn on the ground…

Last post before lockdown for the 3 day exam…

A song that came up on shuffle during this morning’s run.  I thought it was timely since autumn was all around me :).

In the autumn on the ground,
between the traffic and the ordinary sounds
I am thinking signs and seasons while a north wind blows through
I watch as lovers pass me by
Walking stories – whos and hows and whys
Musing lazily on love
Pondering you
I’ll give it time, give it space and be still for a spell
When it’s time to walk that way we wanna walk it well

I’ll be waiting for you, baby
I’ll be holding back the darkest night
Love is waiting til we’re ready, til it’s right
Love is waiting

It’s my caution not the cold
There’s no other hand that I would rather hold
The climate changes, I’m singing for the strangers about you
Don’t keep time, slow the pace
Honey, hold on if you can
The bets are getting surer now that you’re my man


I could write a million songs about the way you say my name
I could live a lifetime with you and then do it all again
And like I can’t force the sun to rise or hasten summer’s start,
Neither should I rush my way into your heart

– Love Is Waiting, Brooke Fraser

    • That song has been stuck on my mind all day… love it!

      Thanks for the well wishes… the student centre finally had the bright idea to email it (the take-home exam) to everyone so I have a lot of work ahead of me… *deep breaths*

  1. You’ve just stumbled upon one of my Brooke Fraser favourites. The song brings to mind a moment in Perth on a cold Autumn evening – and the dream of possibilities!

    • I had this playing on the background of my mind all through this exam weekend… it is definitely one that can inspire good blog writing ;)
