Happy Autumn


Pete and I spent the weekend at a wedding in the Catskills, which gave us an excellent opportunity to appreciate the turn of the season. If I had my way, it would be October all year long.

Pete says that I am biased because I have an October birthday, which may be true. Still, I love everything about autumn – the smell of leaves, the crisp air, the quality of the light.

I'm looking forward to spending the next few weeks traveling to graveyards after having been confined all summer.

If you'd like to try the adjacent towns of Fitchburg, Leominster, Lunenburg, and Shirley in the next couple of weeks let me know and I'd be delighted to go along. I've been to the principal cemeteries in each of them; Shirley is where the important carver John Dwight is buried.

Thanks for the invite — I'll let you know if I'm headed that way!
