Seasonally Affective

If there are manic and depressive seasons, summer is depressive with it's heat and lethargy. Fall is manic. Today with the first cool weather and a little fire perking along in the woodstove, I am falling all over myself with things I want to do, and am holding back a veritable geyser of things to write about... the fall wildflowers, the smell of woodsmoke, more about trees, an overabundance of images ready to post, words about words and language, and musings about where our sciences and technologies are taking us. But more about all that later, after raking leaves, splitting kindling, covering up the tomatoes against tonight's frost, and generally putting the garden to rest.

Oh yeah. And before I go, I must remember to tell you that the biweekly topic for October 1 at the Ecotone will be "Ancestral Place(s)". If you just want to read what others write, stop by the Ecotone Biweekly Topic on Wednesday after posters have had a chance to get their writings up. To offer your own contribution, if you aren't familiar with wiki format, email me and I'll be glad to help you get on board. Should be an interesting group of responses, do drop by.

It's a cool breezy day here is South Alabama and it sure feels nice. I look forward to reading your essays about fall. I've been spending quite a bit of time here, reading from your archives, and I really enjoy your work. Thanks for sending it out for the world to see.
