09/28/12 - NNHS Newsletter - Early Autumn

“Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We'll smell smoke
then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness,
swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure.”

- Thomas Wolfe
(03 Oct 1900 - 15 Sept 1938)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

  
Can you feel the crisp autumn air where you are yet?

  From Charlie Snead ('64) of NC - 09/27/12, 10:30 AM:

I was touched by the Delta 15 story and checked it in Snopes...VERY TRUE and a link follows.

http://www.snopes.com/rumors/gander.asp

Thank you for keeping us together.
Charlie

   Thank you so much, Charlie! That is an amazing story, isn't it?!?


      From the Incomparable Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of NC - 09/27/12:

Hello all! I posted another blog today, a little late, I know, but I had a very busy weekend with the second read-through of my musical, Pudding Lane (which went very well, thank you for asking!). So here is the latest on Last Tango with Charis. Enjoy!

http://lasttangowithcharis.blogspot.com/2012/09/numinous-luminous-or-merely-voluminous.html

   Thank you, Charis - this is a pure delight!
  
To those of y'all unfortunate enough to not know Charis, I must tell you that she is a fabulous individual.
        My sister, Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and I are still completely flabergasted that Charis even deigns to talk to us, let alone lets us be her friend!


     From Me ('65) of NC - 09/27/12 - "And Speaking of My Sister...":
 
     Those of y'all who know us - or have even ever seen us together - already know that we are so different it's hard to believe that we're even remotely related, much less full-blooded sisters, but this quotation from Martha Washington expresses our shared opinion beautifully!

Early Autumn

Music b
y Ralph Burns (29 June 1922 – 21 Nov 2001) and Woody Herman (16 May 1913 – 29 Oct 1987), 1949

Words by Johnny Mercer (18 Nov 1909 – 25 June 1976), 1949

Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald (25 Apr 1917 – 15 June 1996)


When an early autumn walks the land and chills the breeze
and touches with her hand the summer trees,
perhaps you'll understand what memories I own.

There's a dance pavilion in the rain all shuttered down,
a winding country lane all russet brown,
a frosty window pane shows me a town grown lonely.

That spring of ours that started so April-hearted,
seemed made for just a boy and girl.
I never dreamed, did you, any fall would come in view
so early, early.

Darling if you care, please, let me know,
I'll meet you anywhere, I miss you so.
Let's never have to share another early autumn.
