In Minnesota, we’ve been blessed by an absolutely stunning Autumn. The brilliant colors have now faded, but I continue to enjoy the crunch of leaves beneath my feet as I walk to class each morning. Usually, the end of October marks the beginning of the downward spiral into the seemingly unending winter, but this year, the days continue to be perfect.
I took advantage of the sunshine the other day and spent some time on a park bench in the middle of campus with a book. What a wonderful way to spend one of the last lovely days of the year.
Who knows when I’ll next have the chance to bask in the sun?
This is Minnesota. Winter is coming.
