We are husband and wife, sitting together with our dog and our coffee, watching gold leaves travelling down from the tallest of tree tops, floating like gliders along the north winds...
And when the winds pause, the leaves sift vertically downward within the clusters of trees, and they sparkle in the sun like stained glass...
We could be sleeping or reading or working, but we agree that sitting here lazily watching is better...
At least for the moment...

So golden in my valley are the autumn leaves this time of year, that even when the clouds will hide the sun, I will feel I am walking with the sunshine.

Our female Presidential candidate is speaking today in Dade County Florida.
Like a candidate for National Grandmother, she goes on and on and on, telling us to elect her so that America's daughters won't have a male President who will make them think they're all ugly if they gain a pound or don't look glamorous.
In the meantime, her biggest backers and fans live in and made their fortunes in Hollywood, and they grew up with transplants and liposuction and cosmetic surgeries of all sorts.

Happy Halloween on this cold Monday morning. It may have been 41 in nearby Cleveland, but it was a frosty 31 in our Lake County valley near the Geauga County border.
Big Dog Mick and I rose early to walk in pre-dawn darkness.
We were dazzled by the size and brightness of the stars splashed above us.
Sometimes it seems that the stars must GROW in the cold of such mornings.
When daylight arrives, it will even more beautiful!
