Vista shot. LOVE the early morning mists that drift through the valley. Intense late fall sunset...Garden abundance: Tomatoes, pumpkins, peppers, pears, nectarines, almonds, grapes - some real bad (wasted) with the powdery mildew after August RAIN - cucumbers, and corn! i love the honeybee working the sweetcorn!
Fall was punctuated by the tragic loss of my dear friend Avi Livingstone (abbie rush) in late September. She arrived with me to Humboldt County in 1982, and was a friend and sister for many years. Details of her death here. She left behind her adult children Eshaih and Shoshona, 12 year old Elon, and 8 year old twins: Hana and Coby. ...Uncertain if there really is fate. Below, circa 1983 with my firstborn daughter....AND we won this beautiful community crafted quilt from Salmon Creek Community School. Confident there is magic. i have close ups of the quilt to share, and more pics of summer '09.
