The colors of autumn

In celebration of my favorite time of year, I've joined Autumn Colour Week (I'm a day late, so I will have to catch up on the first two days today). I hope you'll join us, too!

Today is Michaelmas, an old and traditional festival that I've written about before.  There is much to celebrate -- and anticipate -- at this time of year. I've been loving seeing peeks of Emily's family's Rosh Hashanah celebrations. I think we could all use a little bit of that spirit of a new beginning here in autumn in our lives, no matter what our faith tradition. For me, not being Jewish, Michaelmas fits this bill. We are actually going to celebrate on Thursday because my husband is the dragon bread maker in our house, and we won't see him before then. (I know, such a long time. Sigh.)

Finally, we have been having some computer weirdness around these parts. It may just take my technical support team husband just taking the time to do some disk cleanup and so on when he's here, but I have been having a bit of trouble with my photos lately. So, hopefully it won't interfere too much with my presence here.
