A Roundabout Way of Saying Happy Birthday

It's Steve Howe's birthday today. Lead guitarist for British prog-rock group band Yes, Howe helped define their distinctive sound. His guitar is instrumental (no pun intended) in making Roundabout from the group's 1973 release "Fragile" the hit it was... (btw, I think they must have sold one helleva bunch of shampoo to rock groups in the early 70s!)

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
