Happy Autumn!

Ah, my favorite time of year … especially when our weather changes and it actually feels like autumn as well. (Today it won’t, with temps in the high 80°s.) And if you are wondering, “the fall equinox arrives on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 3:20 P.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere.” (Yes, I looked that up.)

Looking Back

A year ago today was the last day I gave oboe lessons in person. I had three students here in my house. We had no masks yet, but all my students were used to going first to wash their hands: I’d been having them do that for years.

Here, have some Thursday images, which are from even further back in time:

Good Morning, World

Wishing everyone a safe day, but not one of isolation, even as we continue to hunker down in our homes. Today I am thankful for the ability to communicate in the ways we couldn’t imagine some years back. It is lovely to see my family’s faces as we chat. It’s wonderful to see my students and get to hear them play. And if any friends out there need a little meet up just say the word.
And now please enjoy this image of some interesting leaves. I’ve no idea what this plant is, but the contrast between the dark, larger leaves, and the bright yellow ones caught my eye.
