"October is a fine and dangerous

  season in America. It is dry and cool and

the land is wild with red and gold and crimson, and all

the lassitudes of August have seeped out of your blood, and you

are full of ambition. It is a wonderful time to begin anything at all."

Thomas Merton


Come and celebrate autumn beginnings!
