I wrote these essays day by day after my daily walks in Boyce Park during the autumn leaf-fall in 2015. My wife Carol and I walked these woods daily for about 15 years– a total of well over 15,000 miles in this intimate natural space, I recently calculated–before her sudden death the previous February, and I continued walking there alone after she passed. So what I see and write about here is inflected by that loss, by the spectacle of fall I am witnessing as I walk, and by whatever I happen to be teaching and reading at the moment, all in my head at the same time. I wrote each essay right after I got back home, before I headed off the work, so they have a serendipitous aspect to them, as surprising to me sometimes as I hope they might be to you. A paperback (bound, nice cover) version of the book is available (at the cost of printing it) on amazon.com. You can purchase all my print and audio books via my “author’s page:” amazon.com/paul-kameen.
