Fall Classic

Images from a spectacular fall weekend in New Hampshire, as I sit down to watch my beloved San Francisco Giants take on the St. Louis Cardinals. Game 7, winner goes to the World Series.

This one goes out to my true beloved, my partner, my everything, who married me twelve years ago on a gorgeous fall day in Charlottesville, Virginia. Ever since, she’s been hanging in there as I’ve agonized over things of ultimate significance — like the Giants in game 7. GAME 7!! Love ya, babe. 🙂
