Crisp golden blanket
covers spring's and summer's green
protects from first frost


Updated to add: On a serious and scary note, a blogger that I've seen around in comments on other blogs is missing. Her name is Kathleen (Beany to friends) from So Grateful to be Mormon and from Alaska. Some blog pals were in contact with Kathleen online over the weekend, but she didn't show up for work on Monday and has been missing since and not answering her cell phone or text messages. Her family is obviously distraught and her bloggy pals are worried. The authorities have been contacted, and this isn't much information here to go on (hopefully she'll turn up safe very soon or there will be some further details to help find Kathleen), but if you know anything, please contact the family. My thoughts are with the family and hoping she's safe, warm and OK.
