When my girls were little, I occasionally sang a few lines from an old song — just around the corner there’s a rainbow in the sky, so let’s all have another cup of coffee.
For the record, neither daughter is a fan of this song, or of my singing, at all.
These days, there’s no around the corner, or, if there is, we’re just not looking there. Election? Halloween? That once eternal late-fall slide towards the holidays and whatever those might bring….
In a strange kind of way, this hovers on relief — no worries this year about whether we’ll have any family at our holiday table — the divorced mother’s woe — as the answer is clear: we won’t.
In the void, we move from cup of coffee to a spontaneous late afternoon walk with a friend. And the fall foliage is still mighty fine.

Good memories of coffee with you in Montpelier, back in THOSE days. The branches are getting bare around the house but the hills are still amazing around here too.
Hi Sue, every time I pass Bohemian Bakery I think of you. Hope your daughter is enjoying college…. lovely wishes to all of you!
Well, I think you need to “have another piece of pie.”
That’s such a great line! And fall is the season for pie!
Yes we are set up for one strange holiday season this year. Yet I look onward to it just the same.
