and is she beautiful. Stunning colors, crisp nights, warm days. This is one of the many reasons I live in Maine. And with those crisp fall nights come hunger and full shelters and a rise in desperation and heating and other bills. These are my requests: if you have it to give, give some money to a shelter or a food pantry, or donate some food. If you know of a shelter, free supper, or other resource in Hancock County, post it here in the comments so I have a complete area list. Today I had a request from a mother with a six year old for housing, and I had nothing to offer her that she hadn’t already tried.

So love the crispness. And love each other, eh?
