I love the fall and it seems to be fading fast.  Storms and rain moving in where I live.  Yes, we may be on the edge of winter so a little more fall color seems appropriate.  The vineyards in Sonoma county are quite colorful this time of year.  The grapes are mostly gone, their juice already working its magic in large vats or barrels with a little yeast thrown in.  Sounds simple but it’s not.  So while the juice is doing its unseen thing, we get the incredible spoils; the beauty of the vines and leaves themselves in a setting sublime, mingling with natures color clock, changing its appearance from green to yellow to orange/red before falling off completely.  Now that’s art!
