None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human
birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek
to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Hundred Wild Flowers," Wild Flower Lyrics and Other Poems, 1897
Good morning my fair friends and followers,
Today is the first of November ... I know many people
dislike the coming of autumn but I love it. I always have. I love the different
shades of gold, copper, brown and yellow in the trees. Everything seems to hold
a warmth that is lacking in the pastels of Spring and the brightness of Summer.
I don't know how else to explain it but this time of year
sings to me and I feel myself relaxing into it.
