Letting it go, joining Twitter, and where are the autumn leaves?

1. Elizabeth Lawrence is quoted as saying, 'Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." So have you done just that? And what did you leave undone in order to do so?
I did get to just 'watch the leaves turn'- I went to Central Park and sat by the duck pond at 100th street on the West Side. At first there wasn't much to see, but then at the pond the leaves were at least turning, if not yet falling.
2. Since we're talking turning...what's one thing you feel you're doing 'every time you turn around'?
Um, rotating? I'm not sure, but I guess you could definitely say that I am rotating every time I turn around.

3. How hard is it for you to 'turn the other cheek?'
Horribly hard. This is something that I tend to do, it get upset and hold a grudge. Of course I know it's wrong, but it feels so immediately satisfying to have control over them with refusing to forgive them. Of course, we all know that is hokey and isn't healthy is the long run.

4. When did you last turn a drawer, your car, a room, or your entire house upside down looking for something? Did you find it?
Last Tuesday. I put my keys on my bed where I was getting around, and when I went to leave I forgot I had even grabbed them, thinking they might either be in Pennsylvania or packed in a suitcase.

5. 'One good turn deserves another'...were you most recently on the giving or receiving end of that sentiment?
I don't know when the last time I even heard this statement was.

6. Red, yellow, and orange are the colors of fall. Also the colors of fruit. If you were permitted only one color of fruit in your diet, which would you choose? This question isn't as easy as it sounds, at least not for me.
The writer has some random thought process. Um,. I'd stick with Yellow. Because I like bananas, pears and golden delicious apples.

7. The Hunt for Red October, October Sky, Halloween...which 'October' film is your favorite?
None of the above? I am not into Halloween, and haven't seen the other two (although October Sky sounds interesting). We are most likely going to have a movie marathon on Halloween since Halloween in NYC is unlike any other night in the city. We are most likely watching Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, since Tom somehow has lived 27 years and not seen them.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I Joined Twitter. And.... I like it. So, come follow me to see when my new posts go up, and to see what life in NYC is like!

It's about that time again! Six months ago I wrote from A-Z, a different letter every day in April (except Sundays). This time around I'm going to write a post every day in October, hence Blogtober. Clever, huh?
