Fall equinox is in only a few days. Already the late summer light is disappearing earlier, and despite the early September sunshine we have been blessed with here in the northwest (after a particularly dismal late August) the days are growing cooler, the leaves continue to turn and the first of the Christmas catalogs (!) have begun to arrive. Since our summer here was scarce to say the least, I am a bit more reluctant than usual to face the coming change of season. Yet, tonight I read a note I had scribbled during an evening at Monroe a few weeks ago – “there’s no air conditioning here” – and I am reminded that I know of a few men who must be terribly relieved to see the arrival of fall. Now I have to ask them if there is any heat in their cell in the dead of winter?
