October was full of good things. While writing that last sentence a latent appreciation for some of the bitter experiences of life unexpectedly stole up from some unknown recess of self. I feel a growing (and anxiety producing) awareness that it is the bitter that intensifies the sweet. So today I'll delight in the sweetness of this last month while maintaining a hearty respect for everything that contributes to life's flavor. This time with it's varying array of flavors is an unexpected joy.
