My new home is an ever changing place.

It's fall here in the Mid Hudson Valley, or the MHV as I've shorthanded it, and in the lowlands where I live between the Shawangunk Ridge to the west and the Marlboro Mountains to the east, called the Wallkill Valley, the leaves are approaching their peak of colorfulness. This reminds me that despite how painfully I miss California, autumn in the Northeast is one of the most beautiful things on earth.

In addition to reading about New York mountain ranges on Wikipedia, I am learning about this region's politics. Sean Eldridge, the husband of a Facebook bajillionaire, is attempting to finance his way into being my Representative in Congress.
