Morning Thanks

Garrison Keillor once said we'd all be better off if we all started the day by giving thanks for just one thing. I'll try.

A walk in the Northwoods


What people in Minnesota call "peak season" is slightly past, but that doesn't mean the fall colors have faded. Most of the poplars have shed their shimmering buttery excess, but the oaks don't undress quite so glibly, and what they hold still stops the show. Yesterday, on a little hike through the woods, we walked through a showy splashes of earthy russets and reds, set against a whitish background of all those naked, leggy poplars. Just gorgeous.
