Bio Note: I am a retired psychiatrist in my late 80’s living in Brookline, MA. I am passionate about poetry, music and running. My poetry book, Driftwood was recently published by Kelsay Press. In addition, my poems have been published in Scissortail Quarterly and Sweetycat Press, as well as online sites.
October is football October is colorful foliage October is Halloween October is a prelude to a cold, snowy winter, at least, in the northeast. I once decided to not face another dreary winter, took anther job, and moved back to California just in time for a staff retreat in a national park, only to be greeted by a huge October snowstorm. Now, back in the northeast I look forward to October and head south for winter.
