For the last few days, the trees have been shedding their leaves in great abundance. Unlike my last apartment, there are some incredible colours here - right up the street are a series of trees that were are all an intense yellow - the ground beneath them is solidly, brightly yellow now almost as if yellow paint were spilled. Up the other street is a tree with red leaves that did the same thing - there's something special when the leaves cover the ground entirely with no gaps, like a lake of colour. More immediately, I'm watching one of my cats trying to fish a teaball out of one of last night's tea cups. Life is beautiful right now.
I have some interesting potential opportunities - a job opening in academia in Germany (that I need to read up on to see if I'm qualified), a decision to make on whether I want to run for a seat on Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee (basically, a decision on whether I would want to put in the time if elected, now that I'm involved in more Wikimedia Foundation projects than I ever was before).
