Photographs taken by my son at Yosemite National Park, California
The fields are harvested and bare,
And Winter whistles through the square
October dresses in flame and gold
Like a woman afraid of growing old.
Anne Mary Lawler
Now Indian summer arrives, a change of season that is more a sense memory than a date on the calendar. Finally the heat is passing. Gradually familiar surroundings don a rustic palate of jewel tones that dazzle with their beauty. Let October seduce you with her charms. "Beguile us in th way you know," poet Robert Frost entreated this season of abundance. Release one leaf at the break of day.
From the book Simple Abundance
I want to try the new Italian Restaurant Fratelli, Waiting for Armando's to open up out our way (Old Tony Macaroni's) and want to check out a new store Artessa The Art of Fine Acessories on Wyandotte St. E. Where Mrs. Jones is and Madisons in that block.
So many new and wonderful places to visit.
