exponentially in the Pacific Ring of Fire.

I like to do projects that challenge me, and hopefully in turn challenge
the audience, or open their eyes to something they're not aware of.
Indigenous Peoples' Day (also known as Native American Day) celebrates the Indigenous peoples of North America celebrated in various localities in the United States. It began as a counter-celebration to Columbus Day, promoting Native American culture and commemorating the history of Native American peoples.

National Dessert Day - What is your guilty pleasure?
Autumn, like most seasons, comes with emotions - something enjoyed by people who like to live in an area where the seasons change. I call it the going-in time changing the energies from summer where one spends most of their time outdoors. Many people tell me it's their favorite season of the year.
More couples meet in the Fall than any other time of the year. Autumn stirs the soul - a time to meet new partners either to settle in for the winter or the long term.
Autumn is a political time of decisions - especially on major election years. Everything could change in a day. If you follow political games what you should have realized in recent weeks is that everything is pretty much quid pro quo and it's fall out. You can follow the Trump train or let it pass your station unless it crashes once again with another weekly disaster. There are so many that it's impossible to know what the truth is that for many it's fun to speculate.
Autumn Health - one must consider the changes the body is feeling as the weather gets colder. There's a big push for flu shots once again. Some people think it's for the Pharma industry to make more money others believe a flu shot is vital. Your call. For now I don't feeling like writing another blog about SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) as people spend so much of their time dealing with mental illness - mostly under the 'depression/anxiety umbrella'.
FFriends in Florida tell me the "snowbirds" are arriving though most return after Thanksgiving. My grandson Dylan, who is a freshman in Tampa University, loves it there so much he doesn't know if he'd ever want to live in the Northeast again. We all need to find our place and hopefully can afford to live there. My daughter Nikki and her family were here Saturday. As we sat at an outdoor restaurant eating dinner while watching the sunset, Nikki looking up at the pink hues said, "This is so beautiful". That's one of the reasons I'm still in Brooklyn ... the view like a screensaver across my entire apartment most evenings. (Pic above taken by my friend John in Cortez, Florida who enjoys an evening stroll by the water)
In three weeks - November 3 - many places move their clocks back one hour. It's interesting that my body has already adapted - going to sleep later and waking up one hour later. Many people expressed not wanting to move back-and-forth every six months from 'saving time' to 'standard time'. I agree. Most have a preference for saving time but I prefer standard.
Holiday season in one way or another seems close at hand - many people making plans now.
Lots of sports ahead .... follow your favorites as a fan, parent, or player.
