Summer memories

Here are some photos of my recent trip to California. I'm completely swamped with piles of schoolwork, and I can't believe the roadtrip ended only a week and a half ago. That was the end of my carefree, golden, suntanning summer.  And now, it's fall. It's back-to-the-grind, reading, thinking time. It's leaves whirling, waiting for first frost, cozy dusky time. These photos seem worlds away and ages ago.

Church by Washington Square in San Francisco.  I remember the truly divine breakfast we had at a little roadside cafe in the vicinity.

How I wish I could study here, if only I had that kind of money!
