Archive for Fall Foliage
As the mornings turn crisp and the night sky fills with wisps of smoke and moisture, you might find yourself craving the coziness that can only be found in darkness and the subtle titillations of fall’s enchantments. This Weekend, why not begin the immersion with a pinch of this and dose of that?

Sacramento’s (Fall) Splendor
What makes Sacramento authentic? What makes it unique? People who live here often forget about its rich history, and that’s probably a pretty typical learned reaction to one’s environment. Like waking up to a gorgeous view every morning… The “novelty” will inevitably wear off a bit, the sheen dull a little in the repetition of the beauty. It’s just human nature, they say, although many of us do try not to fall so hard into these ruts.
I write about the greater Sacramento area all the time, and even I forget about some of her substance, significance, glory, gorgeousness, character and charm. So I’m going to be starting a new series on ‘Authentic Sacramento.’ Because every place we inhabit becomes a part of us, and it’s up to us to pause and take notice.

Have a great day!
