Autumn in Princeton

October 19, 2011

I just returned from visiting my son at college for freshmen parent weekend. My son is doing well trying to juggle an extensive swim practice schedule with academics and social activities. His main emphasis when he was with me was on eating and napping, but he did find the time to give me a great tour of the campus.
We were very lucky. The season is changing and the colors are amazing. Living in California for the last thirty years, I forgot just how nice it was to witness such dramatic changes in nature.
In a month or so, winter will set in and he will be fighting the cold and snow trying to ride his bicycle to practice and class. During those times he may think back to the three days in October when nature cooperated and displayed its majesty.
