And The Summer Became The Fall By Bernadette A. Moyer “And the summer became the fall I was not ready for the winter” from the song Nightbird by Stevie Nicks. I am never ready for winter, I mean yes I have the coats, the hats, the boots, the gloves and scarves but mentally I am a summer and a...

  "Pilly" I remember when I was younger my mother had this little thing, it looked like a handheld fan, that she would run across her sweaters to get the "pills" off of them.  "You don't want your sweaters to look pilly," she would say. There are words that stick with you.  "Pilly"...

Everything came together for me when I took these pictures, the soft lighting on an autumn day, the fall leaves coloring the bottom of the koi pool, the movement of the fish and the water, the reflection of the trees up above. When I uploaded them, I found some looked like paintings, surreal,...

I've written several times about a man from Osaka who sends me emails in a rarefied Japanese far beyond my comprehension. Here's a recent sample, which he wrote when Japan was still ablaze with autumn colors: 風雅に紅葉狩りと洒落込んでこその濡れ落ち葉なのですが、毎週末は映画館です。 風雅 (ふうが: elegance; refinement); 紅葉狩り (もみじがり: autumn...

I always think of November as an odd month, and not just because it is an odd month, being the 11th of the year. November feels heavy to me. Summer is a memory, there are no more refreshing swims outdoors, sweaters and jackets replace shorts and sandals, Halloween is over... We eat...
