Swirling leaves dance in the autumn wind as a trace of pungent wood smoke rises from a chimney and races across the evening sky. Deepening shadows transform the familiar into the unfamiliar. Leafless trees illuminated by gray moonlight gently sway in the wind like skeletons performing some macabre dance. It is the time of year when the unexpected takes on a heightened new meaning.
