You know, when I was living in northern Maine, I remember this time of year as a harvest. The potatoes were being picked and everyone was preparing for the hard winter ahead. Wood and oil were being bought, cars were repaired and there was a mad rush to get stocked up. It was a busy time of the year.

Nowadays, back in the city, I am thinking of this time of year as a new type of harvest. It's a joyous time to gather up ideas and promises. It's also a time for all of us to think about what we want to pick up. School is about to start, with new expectations. Businesses are reevaluating their needs through the end of the quarter. How have you thought about the harvest?
