  • Some of the days in November carry the whole memory of summer as a fire opal carries the color of moonrise.

  • Long cold nights mark November's return, grey rains fall, wind walks in the bronze oak leaves.

  • November wind has a sound different from any other. It is easy to imagine the cave of the winds in some mythical Northland where the winds are born and the gods send them out to conquer the quiet air.
