Enjoying the last days of autumn
November 8, 2007
I went for a bike ride Sunday. It was a beautiful day in the 70s, so I took advantage of what may be the last of our lingering warm autumn days. Since I was gone for two weeks and then had the flu for a couple of weeks, I haven’t felt much like doing anything except spending time on the couch with a book or watching Ellen or Oprah. It felt good to stretch my legs and my lungs and take in the vanishing beauty of the season.

The sight of a tree pruned away from an overhead power line stirs emotions within me. I enjoy the comforts of electricity, and I know the importance of trees, but the two do not mix.
