Autumn Again

I have no idea where the weeks go. It is now two weeks since I last posted a blog entry and the end of September is upon us; the wind and rains, the chilling air, herald autumn without even the good grace of the last few warm days that September usually brings, Keats' "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness".

Thus, I began to trace back to my childhood memories and places that I missed so I began to investigate map of Torrance, CA. I highlighted…
