For me, this time of year is marked by classic country music and spy stories. It seems I'm drawn to Johnny Cash around now...Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, Johnny Cash at San Quentin, the Unearthed box set. As those who know me are aware, ever since I got into James Bond in 1995 I have permitted myself to read one Ian Fleming Bond novel annually, and earlier this week I finally gave in and read You Only Live Twice. It was excellent, but not enough, so I proceeded to read my third John le Carre novel of the year, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. (For the record, yes, it's every bit the masterpiece you've heard it is.)
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to grab my iPod and take a walk with the Man in Black. While I'm out and about, be sure to comment on this post with your own thoughts on Autumn. What do you associate with this time of year? What habits do you have for it? The first person to respond to this post will be entitled to a free gift.
