From 1930, sheet music for Underneath the Falling Leaves (I Fell in Love With You).
The leaves will be falling around here soon. There’s a distinct chill in the air and Saturday is officially the first day of fall.

can you tell i’m excited for fall? also autumn is indeed the best time of year to fall in love.

my favorite time of year


People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow. 

It’s like a picture of the tide coming in, somewhere in the Elemental Chaos.

the fiery border between death and rebirth

imagine wearing something like this instead of garbage from h&m or modcloth. the farther back in time you go, the better the clothing quality… (this is how i justify being a grown woman and still shopping at thrift shops.)
