Friday Afternoon Fall Color Break

Today is the day known as Black Friday here in the U.S.  It's all about shopping and unbelievable crowds all looking for bargains offered by merchants who are looking for profits to end the year. I hope you are enjoying your day and not out in the stampede, even as I understand the desire for bargains.

I was fortunate to be in New York last week while there was still quite a riot of color in the trees around Central Park. This small maple tree adorned the sidewalk next to an apartment building on the upper east side.  All of them have probably all shed their glory now after wind and rain and storms have come through.

And this is the end of our Friday fall color break series as Advent begins on Sunday, and with it comes a new Friday series.

Blessings for the coming season of Advent.
