  • Save your leaves

       Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fowl swoop.  We rake and pile, and they jump.  

       I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: Adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer. At the farm, raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (within reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

  • Regretting the ebb of summer and the woe of winter

    Is anyone happy about having to scrape frost from their windshield?
    Count me out.
    I’m not a fan of cold weather. I don’t like to be cold. I don’t like to feel the wind whipping through my hair.
    That’s just not sexy.
    There’s nothing, let me repeat, nothing that makes me shiver more than a slight nip in the air that seems to just find the nap of my neck then seeps down my spine and robs any warmth that I’ve been able to store.

  • Just some food for thought

    We were eating pizza — thin crust perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.
    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.
    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?
