October 19, 2016
The leaves are turning beautiful colors, I realized with a jolt. It is somehow shocking to me to see the colors - it is too early! And then I realize that it is already fall, well into fall, nearly a month. How the hell did that happen? While it is true that I really am ready for 2016 as a year to be over and done with, I can't quite believe that it is the second half of October already. We are rushing headlong into the holiday season and I am not prepared for the madness to ramp up even more.
