I know, it is much too early to be thinking about winter. Or is it? I'm already feeling the chill of late summer nights. What a relief, after the heat we've had. One of the loveliest things I saw on my trip to Maine was Judith and Lee's stack of wood in the mudroom, all ready for those cold November nights. There is something about correct form in sizing and stacking that makes for a deeply reassuring sight. Note the log carrier, properly curled, awaiting its next load. Let the snow fall!
