Vikki and I are working away at the October issue. Yes, September is almost at an end. I have been going on a number of bike rides lately to enjoy the vivid fall colours. A couple of weeks ago I was riding my bike past Giovanni Caboto Park, down 108 Avenue, and I was showered by yellow and orange leaves. I think a few of them got stuck in my helmet. Poetry in motion. This season does not last long enough.

Today is the day: the deadline for the October issue. I always get excited around deadline time. The contributors always keep me on my toes and I am constantly amazed by the quality of submissions as well as the wide range of subject matter. Deadlines can also be a stressful and busy time because a lot of the paper's content tends to come in around the same time. Such is life in the newspaper business.

The September issue has been picked up, mailed to Boyle, distributed to carriers, and placed in various businesses throughout the neighbourhood. Yesterday, I filled in for a route with no carrier, putting a note in each paper requesting volunteers. It's fun, it's physical, and I'm tired. Bagging up the papers for the carriers is a good workout. Now - we have to focus on October!
