October is my favorite month. It’s a transition month. You begin wearing shorts and sandals, chasing the last days of summer, and end in jackets and boots, scraping frost off the windshield in the morning, sometimes using the air conditioning in the afternoon. Skies are impossibly blue and seem so close you can scratch them with your fingernail. Leaves carpet lawns, sidewalks and roads. Here are some memories of October.
