Autumnal Equinox Sextodecimo 

Piccadilly Circus, London. Circa 1965, R. Rogers

Fall arrived at 9:04 AM UTC. "Vernal Equinox" sounds more feral than "Autumnal" but I went with the seasonal moniker instead. Is there a built-in sadness to Autumn? I don't think so. Even though this set has a few glum moments, trust me, Loudon Wainwright's The Swimming Song makes up for any slight barometric dips.
