Living in a city like New York, I’ve grown used to being able to order practically any type of food that strikes my fancy, at any time.

Fall in Michigan - it's glorious! Colorful leaves, mist on the lake in the early mornings - and even rainbows, and northern lights this week. We see Canadian geese, ducks of all sorts, the great blue heron, and the eagle fishing. Leaves float by, the lilypads curl up in the cold.
