In Search of Bittersweet
One fall when my son, who is now 18, was little maybe 4 or 5 we went in search of bittersweet. He couldn't quite say it right turning the t's in to r's. "Birrsweet"
It's a really nice memory I have of time spent with him. That year was one of the years that the pretty fall colored vines were hard to find so we had quite a long search excursion in the woods behind our house.
For a long time I've wanted to find a book club and things have stood in the way of that. Available time to hang out and talk about a book being the biggest stumbling block.
There's a great online program (it's also an app) called Meetup and I found a book group that seems to fit my schedule. The group read a David Sedaris book this month and I finished it last night, just in time for tomorrow nights get together. Sedaris writes a lot about his family and is laugh out loud funny. One of the things I found most humorous was how his family doesn't like to tell him things for fear that they will become part of the content of one of his books.
Knowing that I won't say much more except Happy Fall Ya'll. Hope you find some pretty bittersweet or whatever it is that makes you happy this time of year. I know I am in search of it.
