if i hadn't decided to gather leaves in mt morris park today- just down the street from us in our lovely harlem neighborhood,
i may have missed out on autumn in new york.
i miss a lot that happens during weekday light hours because i work through all of them--- now that it is dark at 4pm and feels like midnight at 6pm.
so i am proud to announce it's autumn in new york. crisp air. puffy coats on rolly-polly children. multicolored leaves, ideal for gathering. pumpkin and apple recipes going through my head. cold noses.
but not too cold.
