Big week ahead. I'm off to Laguna Beach tomorrow and arrive home in time to start a writing workshop with Jon Katz at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, NY. The next day, I am supposed to visit a pet crematorium for an article I am writing. Today, after running last minute errands in preparation for my flight, I was driving up my driveway when I spied a "bouquet" of mushrooms on the front lawn. I ran inside to get my camera and tried snapping them for a few minutes. Nothing too spectacular. Then I noticed this lone, little fella a short distance away. I love the warmth of his color, the microcosm in which he dwells.
