Today I walked into work with a soft autumn rain sprinkling on my umbrella. I don't understand how it happens, but when it rains, soft and sweet, a divine scent rises from the earth and sidewalks. It smells like Fall. Or it smells "refreshed." Or it smells "sweet and earthy." Or maybe you can just nod your head in understanding :) I searched through all sorts of images to find ones that expressed such an autumnal rain and I found Kirstie Cohen. These are the magical landscapes of Scotland in the fall. Perfect!
Andrew and I are slowly getting geared up for a trip out east next week. It's part business, part research, and part pleasure. Well, I should say most of it is pleasure, regardless of the reason we're traveling there, being in New England is divine. We'll be in the northern reaches, near Manchester, NH and Portsmouth. Does anyone have any special spots near there I should definitely check out?
