My husband and I just returned from almost three weeks in Japan on our own. It was our second trip there in a year and a half. The first time, we went for cherry blossom time, and we knew we wanted to return to see the fall foliage. I grew up in New York, have visited our son and DIL in Maine, and seen summer turn to autumn many times—but never have I seen colors like these, combined with the magnificent designs of Japanese gardens. I hope you enjoy these photographs. Just know that no camera can do justice to the colors you see in person. (I took these pictures in Kyoto and Kanazawa.)

My friend Cami knew I would love these definitions and ideas. I do, I do. I think you will, too.

In Just My Typo, edited by Drummond Moir (gotta love his name), he cites a 19th century example of carelessness:
A New Orleans cotton broker sent a telegraph to New York, asking if he should buy cotton at the current prices. He received an answer of “No price too high.” Naturally, he bought as much as he could, only to discover that the answer should have been punctuated as follows: “No. Price too high.”
One tiny dot on paper can make a world of difference.
