Autumn is in the Air

Saturday, October 13th, 2018

I saw this quote by Albert Camus in a brochure from a Senior Living Center and went online to see if I could find it. Thanx, Shannondell for finding it first! Here are some photos that reflect the quote:

 

I call this Fire Flowering!

 

 This tree is just beginning to “flower.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The orange and gold leaves are as lovely as any flower!

 

 

 

 The contrast between the green and the orange is lovely!

 

I think I took this in the car on the way to State College, PA, when the fall was beginning to cover the  mountains the way flowers dot the landscape in spring.

 

 

I even love the leaves as they turn brown, although I am partial to the deep reds and bright golds, especially when the sun catches their colors. Hope you are having a spectacular fall!

New Travel Service from Writing Friend

Monday, October 8th, 2018

 

Joyce Eisenberg, who started the Play Pen writing group here in Lower Merion, just outside of Philadelphia when her children were small, has added a new dimension to her list of activities. I am happy to share her latest venture with her son Ben, now all grown up! See Joyce’s description below.

Joyce helped me with my re-publication of my book, Flight to Freedom: A Tale from Tarpiluvka, now available on Amazon. She also contributed several pictures of laundry for my book, For the Love of Clotheslines, which will be back on Amazon soon.  This is one way I can thank her for her help.

 

Ben’s Travel Service: Planning Trips Beyond Your Wildest Imagination! 

 

Dear Friends,
If you know me, you know that I love to travel. When I’m not traveling, I’m reading about where to go next! I also love to share my discoveries. For years I was a writer and editor for Fodor’s Travel Guides.
So I’m thrilled to announce that I have joined my son, Ben Eisenberg, at Ben’s Travel Service. In reality, we’ve always been travel partners. When Ben was 2, Ted and I took him to Hawaii; when I was 53, Ben took me to Kunming, China, to meet the family he had lived with during college. We share a passion for travel and adventure.
When you’re thinking about where to go next, please think of us. We can help you plan an all-inclusive family vacation, a trip for a small group of friends, or a romantic anniversary getaway. We can find a cruise that suits your style or a reasonably priced business class ticket for last-minute travel.
We can research the best tour for you, but if – like me – you prefer to travel independently, we can help you do the same in a way that’s safe and comfortable. We can customize any trip to suit your interests and your budget.

Why use Ben’s Travel Service? We know that you can do it yourself; you’ve likely booked flights and hotels and cruises online for years. But we can save you time, hassle and money with our extensive worldwide travel experience, our network of global contacts, and our ability to sort through the online travel maze. We will help you find the best routes, the cheapest flights, and hotels with the amenities you want.

I’m available to chat by phone or email if you want to brainstorm about travel possibilities. I look forward to helping you plan the next trip of your dreams.

Best wishes,
Joyce Eisenberg
