Although back home now, I cannot leave the images of autumn behind me. From the falling golden leaves to the golden sunsets I bask in the beauty nature threw upon my eyes. In two short days I will return for a fortnight to Santa Barbara to continue helping my uncle in his recovery from having broken his hip. Prior to the Presidential election I will return to Phoenix to vote and then back to California until my uncle has been cleared to once again drive and bear his full weight upon his hip. But for now I want to have as clear a mind as this late afternoon sky possessed, I want to rest in the same calm warm light before once again entering the emotional maelstrom that envelops a frustrated and despressed elderly uncle. Today’s photo was taken a few days prior on Lake Michigan.
