How do you take your coffee??

Crisp! As in the weather. Some might say “brisk” or even “cold”, but nowhere near “<expletive>-ing cold”.

It’s funny the way the mind wanders (at least it’s funny to me). Someone on our walk mentioned that it was brisk, and that made me think of crisp – a crisp fall day – and that made me think of the old commercial for Coffee Crisp (hence the heading of this post). Yes, my mind meanders almost as much as the roads we travel at the cemetery.

Ah yes, we’re back in the cemetery. On my way there I rode under grey skies and then through fog. Leaves were coming down and there were lots of yellows and reds, but muted by the grey overhead. Along the way I saw the sun as a ghostly white circle through the misty skies. And by the time I got to the cemetery the sun was starting to stream through the mist from that morning’s frost.

Some of the trees had lost all their leaves, but not too many. However, there wasn’t much green except for the pines and the grass. The grass itself had patches of frost making for a wonderful green and silver mottled effect. As for those red and yellow leaves that seemed dull under grey skies, they were absolutely sparkling in the sunshine against the sky blue1This display rivals the beauty of the stunning plethora of greens that covers the trees in the spring.

And the cold? What of it? We walkers know that once we get moving we’ll heat up from our own exertion. That and the knowledge of the delightful post-walk coffee and chat! This week’s was no exception with plenty of stories, smiles and laughter. And look, we’re back to coffee. Just like our winding path through the cemetery we end up right where we started. But for all the effort, beauty and camaraderie, we know the journey was worth it!
