By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    @Real, you too, welcome to the forum. :)
    Lynne is on holiday at this moment, so please be patient.
    You'll get the invitation when Lynne is back okay?
    How to join the sessions?
    Well, if you want to join Skype sessions you need to be in the Skype Group.
    If you want to join the sessions in virtual world (SL = Second Life) you need to join Second Life and join the Virtlantis Group.
    And there are also English sessions on Google Plus with Lynne (twice a week on Monday and Wednesday) and for this you have to be member of LEO Network in Google Plus.
    But these all are on break until 6 January 2014.
    If you need more information, just ask it here.

    Hi, @Helvio. I am new to here. Thanks for the welcome. Where are you from? And I wonder how's the weather there? It's very cold in Hong Kong. Just around 10 degree Celsius!
  • Helvio, mind i ask how can I mention your name in my thread like how you did? adding this "@" symbol doesn't work :(
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    You are welcome Sakaogata!
    I am Brazilian and here is cloudy but rain free, something around 20°C.

    And don't worry about the @bluename, it will work with the time, just keep sharing.
    :)
  • @bluename Helvio, << is it so? How to mention your name. Can you tell me?


    Nice to meet you!! I am a bit envious that you have such a pleasant temperature. Cloudy is bad, though. I hate cloud and mist.


    By the way, are you a student or a worker? I am a fresh graduate majoring in Translation. I hope to practice my English and share my knowledge with you all. (I am also a tutor). If you have any Questions, you can ask me!
  • 20°C. Cool. pleasant temperature! cloudy is a bit bad though. I hate cloud and mist that kind of blurry thing. Are you a student?
