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"

Destinations

"One's destination is never a place...,

But rather,







a new way of seeing things."







~Henry Miller~

I'm going down to the Bay Area, to see my family this weekend. I will be gone until Monday or Tuesday. Gotta give out candy and take pictures of The Bean and his brother in their Halloween costumes. They will be trick or treating on the same street that I did when I was a child. How amazing is that?

In my case, it was Redwood Ave in San Bruno, and nothing much has changed. :-)

Well, how was it around the old neighborhood? Bring back any memories? Did you wear your wax lips and then eat them?
