The holidays have started. I hope your Halloween and Thanksgiving were as nice as mine. 

Here's a thought about holidays from Fred Rogers:

"I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending."

Winter is coming! Get the egg nog ready!

Early Snow

It took me two hours to drive 25 miles through the snow storm we had this week. We don't usually get so much snow this early in autumn while the leaves are still falling. I think the colored leaves on the snow were worth all the trouble the storm caused.              Click to enlarge.

Autumn Leaf Edition

from Autumn 
by Rainer Maria Rilke 

The leaves are falling, falling as if from far up,
as if orchards were dying high in space. 
Each leaf falls as if it were motioning

Halloween Aftermath

Halloween must seem like a free food windfall to squirrels. Click to enlarge. 
From this. 
To this.  
There are chewed up pumpkins all around. 
Because pumpkins are delicious and nutritious. 
And we love the corn, too. Thank you.
