I always loved fall–I was that nerd who couldn’t wait to go back to school. But now fall isĀ associated with the loss of loved ones. Long lives well lived, but their absence leaves a hole that’s as raw as ever.

At the same time, it’s a wake-up call. A reminder to appreciate every minute. Every hug. Every bite, and not just on Thanksgiving. Every leaf and stone.

I’m lucky and gratefulĀ to have such a wonderful family.
