Sorry if this is approaching indulgent, but I wanted to share a few more pictures to celebrate the coming of fall. As mentioned in a wonderful conversation with my brother Brendan the other day, the fall and especially the Americana of high school football games and drives through the countryside is something I truly do miss. I miss jackets and the electricity in the air, the leaves falling and the beginning of school. This is the time of year here in Korea when my dreams become more intense, more precise, leaving me slightly disappointed when I wake up on a Sunday morning. They all drift towards home. My lady keeps me grounded and focused on the present when my thoughts really do levitate equally in the past and the future.
