I take a special back road when I drive into Pittsburgh just to look at the trees. It is lined with these gigantic 100 year old tress that change into a multitude of colors during the Fall. You tend to find artists who either live in metropolises like New York or LA or in the country or in the middle of a desert. I’m the country type of guy. I think my aversion to the city is from growing up in one. It was always so hot, humid, and crowded in Taipei. No thanks. I’ve got my half acre of land, my koi fish pond, and my own studio where I can paint, stretch silk, frame, cut mats and glass, and ship. I even have a photography studio and wood shop. On top of my Koi fish pond is a small waterfall where song birds play in it in the morning. I think they are getting their daily shower. One time, a mother deer gave birth to her fawn right next to that pond! That was a nice surprise. Although the pond attracts some less pleasant surprises like the raccoons who use it as their own seafood buffet. I usually have to chase after them with a rake to keep them away. My neighbors are amused.
And Oh yea! The Steelers are an awesome part of Autumn.
