As I said, I won't be out there for the memorial service, but I am heading to Connecticut next week (Mon-Weds) to be with family. My plane leaves at 5:30 in the morning and I have a 3-hour layover in St. Louis. Ghuh!
The trees are turning. This evening when I left work it was one of my favorite nature views: direct sunlight on yellow leaves against a deep, dark, blue-purple-gray sky. I wanted to take a picture, but had left my camera at home.
