It seems like day 60 should be significant, given this 60th year/60,000 word challenge. Nah. Just another day along the way. Here’s a bit of verse, inspired by the day:
Autumn lingers, slowing down;
Fields of gold turn muted brown.
Vibrant leaves are juxtaposed
with branches barren and exposed.
A multi-colored leafy spread
Adorns the pathways that I tread.
October fades to days of frost
When all is silvery embossed.
My 60th year in 60,000 words
Day 60: 70 words, TOTAL = 9551; 50,449 remaining
