We have had a lot of unnaturally warm weather this November and I have to say that I have been enjoying it. It’s not winter yet, but the brilliance of October has definitely gone past. I always feel as if I want to hold onto those brightly colored leaves on the skyline, but when the leaves are down and it’s not really winter yet, there is a certain feeling of expectancy, first of the Thanksgiving holiday to come, and then of the winter. I have been thinking about that as I do chores and am enjoying even these gray Northeast skies, the clouds and the birds. It didn’t seem like something I would bother to blog about, but I happened to visit the blog of one of my favorite children’s authors, Cynthia Lord of Brunswick, Maine, and I just had to put a link to her beautiful and simply written thought about November, as well as the other in-between months that come to us in northern climates between the drama of the 4 seasons. Here it is: The Concept of November. Thank you Cynthia!
