What a lovely fall day it's been. I am trying not to choke over the word "fall" because here in Alaska the transition from green leaves to no leaves is often rather brisk. We burn the candle at both ends straight through our short summer. By the time the snow hits and the summer toys and tools are put away, fall is like a quiet person at last week's party: you think they might have been there but you wouldn't swear to it. So this year I am resolved to enjoy the color changes, flowers going to seed, and my lack of motivation to mow the lawn.
