The city is stunning these days, as the change of the seasons enriches its foliage–which is now unveiling its golden hues. They are the last of the city's annual triumphant festivity of color; first are the maroons and oranges, in September and October. This month is my favorite of them all. My birthday is tomorrow and I'll be 29 years new. I have become the person I've always wanted to be. I am me.
