What a wonderful fall it has been-okay, we did have a ruinous snow at the beginning of September but the weather has been apologizing ever since. We had so many golden days with the yellow poplar leaves trembling against a pure azure sky. One day, as I toured around my fields I had to just stop and stare. Everything was so beautiful it was almost painful because I knew it couldn’t last. Well, I was right about that. The leaves held on later than many years but now most are gone. Still, the ground is beautifully carpeted. That is a brief reprieve from the drabness to come. Today the sun is shining brilliantly-pointing out the streaks left behind by my unsuccessful window washing, I might add. Ours is a beautiful world and I know of no place it would be better to live. Seize the day!
