The fall is my favourite season and this year we have been having a month of perfect weather in Ontario. Because there have been no winds or rain, the leaves are still on the trees. And the sight is magnificent. I was exploring the back bays of our lake in the kayak over the past few days. And really, no matter what time of day, and no matter what direction I faced, the views on the lake were spectacular.
I am reading The Rise and Fall of Great Powers by Tom Rachman. Almost all my time, apart from paddling on the lake, was spent with it. It is a wide-ranging and captivating tale, one I recommend you try. It has lots to say about family ties, friendship and survival–and it has one or two characters to add to your lifetime list of favourites.
