The fields are beautiful here at the end of summer -- filled with goldenrod and purple asters and tawny grasses. I always feel that it is a bittersweet time -- as much as I look forward to the cooler weather, I know that I will miss the warmth of the sun and these golden fields as the year reaches it's end.
I've been watching the movie Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close while I edit and prepare this post. Have you seen it? It's about a boy whose father is killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11. This past anniversary at first appeared to be a quiet one, and then it seemed as if the entire Middle East was burning. I'm not going to get political, and I hope you won't either. I just wanted to say this -- hug your kids, tell your spouse you love them. And say a prayer for peace. xoxo
