I accidentally took this photo of a statue in the Oxnead Hall gardens while in macro mode on my phone, and I rather like how it turned out. Also I need another peaceful image today, because it's been eighteen years, and I still find this particular date to be very hard work, not least because on this day in 2001, my grandfather had just died. Why on Earth I decided to do this project in September, the most fraught month in my personal calendar, I do not know.

ETA, literally five minutes later: I have just received the news that my Auntie V died this morning.

Dear September,
Are you fucking kidding me?
No love,
Nanila

Thank you. My Auntie V was never in good health but my poor dad; he's lost two sisters in two months.

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that. *tight hugs*

There are definitely months in my life which are more eventful (MUCH more) than others. For me, it's May and August.

Thank you. *hugs back*

I'm not sure why these things seem to clump together. Congratulations on getting through your eventful months this year.

I'm sorry for your loss. I don't know what's been with September this year, but I've been wanting to do it over since the beginning.

Thank you. It's the last day! Thank goodness. Roll on, October, month containing my Auntie M's birthday, Humuhumu's birthday, and Halloween. \o/
