It is the middle of November and here in New England, even though it is mild today, Fall is here and Winter is on its way. This morning I saw the first cardinal of the season and there’s no mistaking what that means. I’m at an event today on kids and behavioral issues and the rain is just pelting down outside. It’s lunchtime and everyone has braved the elements to get food. Everyone except me. I’m sitting along in the empty hall and listening to warm and languid sounds from Texas in the 1940s. The Cantu Sisters are serenading me with words I don’t understand but which take me away from where I am to a place I’ll never be able to go. I feel pretty lucky.
