Well, yesterday we got back from the third annual trip of reflection. I would talk about things that happened, but I think Greg pretty much summed it all up in his fine post on the oneplace site.
One thing Greg did not mention is my penchant for fall foliage. As we were hiking the nine or so miles through Oak Creek, I collected a lot of beautiful leaf specimens. When I got home, I did some research as to how to preserve them. One thing led to another and I found myself ironing sheets of wax paper with leaves in between. I spent about 45 minutes channeling Martha Stewart as my turned my little collection into a wonder of the craft world. I took the liberty of scanning in my results. I hope you enjoy this little excerpt from “Steve’s Autumn Insanity.”
