Fall is about to arrive in NYC. The summer is behind us. Some of my friends and neighbors are bummed out because the summer was so rainy. But I actually enjoyed it. Summers are so hot and humid in NYC, it is hard to bear for a native son of California. Plus, I rather like the fall. After living on the West Coast for most of my life, it is nice to see the leaves shift colors from green to orange and gold (which will happen next month), experience the weather getting cool and crisp and feeling that there is change in the air.
While the weather is still warm I am going to get out and enjoy the day. So take a look at these posts by some of my regular reads:
