Autumn in New York.



Every year I am disheartened to see summer go. I feel like my insides sag a little bit when I know the last really warm day is gone. But then I get a whiff of autumn in the air. That self-possessed, chilly air and the sloping light of the season. I feel the sagging parts lift, at first reluctantly, but then with full animation because autumn really is something to be celebrated, even if the sun has backed down a bit. Autumn on the east coast of the United States is matchless. The leaves are stunners and the blue, crisp sky sets up all the glory.





So here I am, on my run, which was in immediate celebration of landing in New York and of the fall leaves bordering the Hudson.

















She was celebrating the trees too. I loved how she was blocking out the whole world with those bulky headphones, her hat and her heavy coat (on a rather pleasant and mild day) and was just totally fixated on that tree.

Wow! I used to live at 181st and Cabrini, right around the corner from where your artists was sitting. Now I live in California and miss the fall in NYC, but not the A train. Thanks!
