A chilly front has moved into the Shenandoah Valley, so in celebration of Autumn and the latest Green Silk Journal,
I raise a hot cup of cocoa to GSJ's beloved writers and readers.
Your words knock me out every day!
With Great Love and Appreciation,

......Melancholy time, yet magic to the sight!
Leavetaking kinds of beauty please me best:
All nature withering in a sumptuous light,
The groves and forests gold and purple-dressed,
The wind loud tree -crests, the airy delight,
The mists that roll to trouble the sky's rest,
The rare sun-ray and the first test of frost,
The distant menace of winter's grizzled ghost.
~ Alexander Pushkin
