Not gonna lie—it’s tough getting into the ol’ October frame of mind this year: the pure insanity of the news every damn day, the gut-clenching insomnia-causing terror about the election and its aftermath, the still-nagging-and-very-real fear of catching COVID, and never mind the thousand other little things that might get in the way even if this were a normal October.
But the fall colors are beautiful up here in Wisconsin, as always. The Mrs. and I have enjoyed some Sundays in the country, and we hope to enjoy a couple more. And we resolve, to the extent that we are able, to keep November and beyond in the intermediate distance.
If you have read this blog in a past October, you know how I am about this month of the year. And so it’s kind of inevitable that sooner or later I’d get around to a podcast episode about October, and here it is:
The episode is also available at the usual other spots if those are more convenient for you: Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, TuneIn, and Stitcher. You can also listen to all of the other episodes in those places, or find them here. And as usual, many thanks for caring about it, if you do.
Note to Patrons: This morning, I sent the first edition of The Sidepiece to subscribers. The Sidepiece is a free e-mail thing in which I intend to intermittently write about stuff that doesn’t fit the subject matter of this website. Check your spam filter. As I said the other day, it probably knows better what’s worthwhile. If you haven’t subscribed to The Sidepiece yet and would like to, go here.
