“Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day.” ~ Elizabeth Bowen Finally An Update I officially sound like a broken record, but I have been slacking hardcore.

“Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.” ~ Robert Browning Hudson Valley As I mentioned in my previous post, I was lucky to do ALL the farm things this fall.

“Brooklyn’s good. Brooklyn’s funky. Brooklyn’s happening.” ~ Waris Dirie Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Saturday dawned way to early, even for this usual morning gal. Originally we were going to do sunrise on the Brooklyn Bridge. But thanks to our ten mile trek and Mother Nature deciding her hot flashes were over, we caught an extra hour of snoozes and hoped it ….
“I’ve said this so many times, but I keep coming back to this: Trends come and go. Own them and make them your own.

“When the seasons shift, even the subtle beginning, the scent of a promised change, I feel something stir inside me. Hopefulness? Gratitude? Openness?
