It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

You like OPERA? I haven't been to one in ages! One of the benefits of living in this area is the middle of the night opera, ballet, symphony etc on TV with performers that I had admired by had never had the chance to see, like Tebaldi, Price, Callas, Rubinstein, Mehta, etc.
