KCT Thought of the Week, August 20, 2010

"In Maine, winter is reality, summer a lovely illusion, and those first August-orange leaves are a reminder of this hard truth. . . . . the third week in August is too soon to be reminded of approaching winter, especially with some of Maine's finer pleasures on our doorstep"    Richard Russo  "Autumn"  "A Place Called Maine"
