autumny

This really is what Charlotte looks like when it gets good and autumny, in the backyards and parks and woods, wherever nature has her way. A sight to see. It brings to my mind the work of biologist David Haskell who observed a tiny patch of earth in the Tennessee forest - a few minutes each day for a solid year - and learned across the curriculum of life. Everything is connected was his great takeaway. I imagine there were October days when he observed something akin to Romare Bearden's collage here. Connections.
