Autumn is Here
All of the colors are changing
Autumn is here
Leaves now are falling
It's the first cool, crisp day of Fall here in Austin. Autumn has finally arrived in this beautiful city.
Exactly two years ago, my former girlfriend and I embarked on a 12-hour journey up the coast of California to attend the World Vegetarian Festival in San Francisco. It coincided with the final two days of an exciting baseball season, with San Fran as its epicenter. That crisp, chilly weekend was one of the more memorable experiences I've had in the last four or five years (documented here). Today in Austin, World Vegetarian Day will be celebrated at a massive outdoor potluck picnic party in Pease Park which I'm attending.
After that I'll be hanging out with a diehard San Francisco Giants fan to watch their postseason begin. Two years ago, shortly after we returned from that unforgettable Bay Area trip, the Giants won the World Series.
Baseball has reached its final stages. Football has begun.
The air is crisp, the shadows long.
Autumn is here.
