"Do you recognise my voice?"
"Yes. You are Practitioner..."

"That's right. And why can't you..."
"I know. It's ok, I'm not looking for you, but your voice is my guide."
"Good, Anin. Very good. Where are you? Describe your surroundings, please."

"What do you see, Anin?"
"Er, there are... the tall things either side of me..."
"They're trees, Anin."
"Yes! Trees. And seats made out of the same... similar material as the trees. It's difficult to see clearly, as if through a haze or mist..."
"It is fog, Anin. What are you feeling?"
"Chilly... Its... winter. Damn! This is the same place I keep coming back to, isn't it?"

Spirit of AutumnThey say that he comes with the red of the leaves.
They say that sometimes he can be seen, sometimes he can only be heard, and occasionally you can feel him.
They say that he’s a thief, a hero, the ghost of a drowned man; that he was ignored for years and slowly faded away. That if you acknowledge him he’ll smile and leave you a present, or that he’ll bring a vicious wind and drive you out of the park.
They say that once he stole the wallet of a visiting dignitary, that once he returned the purse that had been stolen from a young woman earlier that day, that he wanders around in search of his girlfriend.
If you stand still long enough in the fog, he’ll climb on you and perch atop your head watching the people go by, as he does with the statues.
Some say that he’s 15, others say that he’s 30. They say he a junkie, a stranger that got lost, a student at the local college. They say that he travels the country during the rest of the year. They tell you t

I crawled up from my place of sleeping and looked outside. The leaves of their many colors waved to wish me a good morning. I walked outside into the cool, crisp air of the fall weather. This was my favorite time of the year. I walked out and began my walk through the woods.
It was still early in the morning, and there was fog on the ground outside. Fortunately, I was still able to see the beautiful leaves on the trees. I walked along a path humans usually walked on. It was too soon for them to be out, so I had nothing to worry about. I looked up at the waving leaves. The beautiful hues of red and orange filled the air with a sense of life and joy. I loved that the most beautiful colors of the year come to pass right before the cold, harsh winter.
I walked along and remembered I still had a lot of food left to eat before I went to sleep for the winter. I looked around to find something to eat. I found a decent amount of berries, and ate them before continuing my walk.

The autumn princessThe autumn princess stretched her hand upon the quiet forest, turning the leaves into vibrant shades of gold, red, and orange. Her auburn hair flowed gently in the crisp September wind. Down below the ant diligently collected food for the winter. Whilst his companion the grasshopper danced and played a merry tune on his fiddle.
Jack Frost whistled a merry tune as he spread the first winter frost upon the fallen leaves. He kept the princess company as she finished her own work of brining in the autumn season. The farmers harvested their crops that had grown during the reign of the princesses of spring and summer. Now they need prepared for the coming of father winter
With a smile the autumn princess watched as the suns last rays illuminated her handy work. The trees shown with brilliant colors, the harvest was prepared, and soon the first signs of winter would come. For now however, everyone would enjoy the beauty that the autumn princess had brought.

Yes checking, I'm always worried I'll join a dead group where I'm the only active user. I like to make sure ahead of time that people are still hanging around...
