Not for the Season


Springtime comes and the leaves are back on the trees again
Snipers are harder to see (my friends)
Weeding out the weekends

Summer comes gravity undoes you
You're happy because of the lovely way the sunshine bends
Hiding from your close friends
Weeding out the weekends


Candy left over from Halloween
A unified theory of everything
Love left over from lovers leaving
Books, they all know they're not worth reading
It's not for the season


When autumn comes you sit in your chair and you stare
At the TV square
Hiding in the deep end
Weeding out the weekends

Winter comes and the days all start late
There's motion on the boughs where the dark shapes prowl
Feeling out the feelings
Feeling out the feeling


Candy left over from Halloween
A unified theory of everything
Love left over from lovers leaving
Books, they all know they're not worth reading
They're not worth reading

~ Laminated Cat (Not for the Season), Wilco

We woke up to a decent dusting of snow this morning. The heat is on, some wood is chopped, my knitting ambitions are ramping up (trying to find the time!), and the darkness is falling way too early in the afternoon. It's a long season ahead, but I think we are all ready.

    1. I love Wilco too :) I know this song from the documentary about them and looked the lyrics up on line... but I actually don't think it's in any of the albums I have. Not sure... and thank you!

  3. I'm a big Wilco fan too! These pictures are incredibly lovely. I'm so jealous of your easy access to city and ocean!
