Bok Tower Gardens, The Singing Tower in 2011

Finally took some old video off of my Flip camera, this was from my visit to Bok Tower Gardens in 2011. The Singing Tower, it's quite impressive in person, as is the rest of the property.
The founder was Edward W. Bok. For 30 years he acted as Editor for Ladie's Home Journal. If you check out the members of his family, they were all quite accomplished. His wife, Mary was the daughter of the previous editor, Louisa Knapp Curtis, and later started the Curtis Institute of Music.

Bok Tower Gardens is located in Lake Wales, Florida. It's one of those places where if you are looking or even not looking for peace, you are bound to find it. It's really kind of magical.

What I've learned from Doctor Who (2005-present) about relationships...

What I've learned from Doctor Who (2005-present) about relationships... 

You want to be Rose or Oswyn, not Martha, and when you realize he'll never reciprocate those feelings, you take on the role of Donna or Amy. Or you do like Martha, and abandon ship. River Song... that's a whole other story, dying when he first meets you, and when you first meet him, you try to kill him... very complicated.

In all honesty, I've never been Rose to any guy, if I was, it would be complete news to me... like that one time I found out I had a boyfriend in college... yet I didn't find out until three years later... felt kind a jipped, not even MySpace official!
Always the Martha, usually, I do end up acting like a Donna or Amy. At some point, I learn to throw any feelings I had aside and accept it as is. Become just the friend. Usually the quickest way for that to happen is the introduction of a girlfriend. Or worst case scenario, I discover I was completely in awe of the idea of who I thought the guy was, rose colored glasses are ripped off, and I discover this whole time... he was a toad. Which in that case, I question what I thought was so wonderful about this toad.

I prefer my sugar-coated spacey idea of love. Which is when you really love and really care about someone, you would travel to the edge of the Universe for that person... like they would for you. Not just a measly 500 or 1,000 miles (you probably know which songs I'm referring to).

The harsh truth is, if the guy wants to be present in your life, he will, and he will travel to the edge of the universe for you, he'll be like Rory Williams, or a Mad Man in a Blue Box.

Fall has always been a favorite season for me. The start of the holidays, the weather, the brief time of the year that there is a different kind of weather for Florida. Fall breezes in Florida are pretty magical.

My spirits feel pepped up, of course the Fall also brings about memories, which are bittersweet. This morning I was thinking of my dad and the scent of his fall/winter jacket, it would vary depending on if he had been working in the paint booth at his Auto Body Shop that day, but other days if he had been grilling, it would smell like burning woods, I think I associate that as the scent of Fall.

Here's hoping for plenty of fall breezes, brilliant colors, and sweet memories, both new and old.
