November...

  1. I have come to realize that I always think of fall, not spring, as the season of new beginnings. It's the beginning of the school year, the beginning of the church year, the beginning of the season for arts and entertainment...hell, it's even the beginning of relief from the heat and humidity of late northeastern summers that has been building since the spring.
