Halloween for real! Get well, New York.

Crisp leaves underfoot, grey, quiet mornings, simmering pots of harvest soup on the stove, houndstooth jackets, pumpkins and expectation.  I've finally come to terms with the fall, and the fact that it is no longer summer (sigh).

I am pretty happy we (mostly) missed any of the extreme, and dramatic weather that has been experienced in New York, and in the southern USA due to hurricane Sandy.....   Flights have just resumed in New York, but many of the subway stations are still underwater.  I hope everyone is ok, and has power and normalacy returned to them quickly.


Happy Halloween to all, here is a bit of a soundtrack for the fall.....

Happy Thanksgiving...

There are many things to be thankful for, and here is one of them....
