"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Autumn Glory

Due to so many rainy days this month, our foliage has been somewhat less than spectacular. And yet...for whatever reason, the season of glory has lasted longer than usual. Now it's Halloween, and we can still find amazingly colourful trees like this one on a nearby country road.

Looking down the same road, it's a tunnel of gold.

This majestic beech tree stands in our own front yard. When the sunlight strikes it, which it does for most of the day, it's almost blindingly bright.

This afternoon we plan to take our canoe out on the little lake one last time before storing it away. The weather is so warm and mild, somewhat atypical for Halloween.

I'm trying to decide whether to wear a costume for our cruise. Not that anybody's around to see me!
