Postcard from Up North

Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We’ll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure. ~ Thomas Wolfe

    What a lovely photograph — the beauty of fall is so fleeting; perhaps that’s why people love this season so much! My South Carolina is a beautiful state, true, yet I still long for a colorful autumn every year at this time! Glimpses of it in photos like yours will have to suffice! 🙂

    Beautiful picture as always, but our North Georgia color’s are not bad either. Keep them coming

    Hi Maureen — lovely photo and quote. thanks for keeping me connected to michigan.
    although it’s awesome here: warm clear days, blue angels overhead, america’s cup racing,
    hardly strictly bluegrass free concert, giants in postseason, street fairs. it’s nice to have two homes.
    come visit! xox

    This is a spectacular picture–as always–and the quote–lovely and haunting as it is meant to be, each season, each time, stirs so much emotion within us
