In a few days fall will officially arrive in The ‘Burgh. Fall is my favorite season of the year. The leaves of the trees turn red, brown and gold. I walk the streets of Oakland (the neighborhood I live in which is the home of the University of Pittsburgh), Little Italy (Bloomfield) and sometimes Lawrenceville looking for creative inspiration while watching the sights, hearing the sounds and smelling the good smells of my hometown.
The days are not too hot and the nights are not too cold. They’re just right.
The summer is almost gone.
