It’s funny—come November here in downtown Madison it feels like a switch has been flipped and it’s now suddenly quieter. I think there are many reasons for this.
Now here I was again at Gillson Beach with the dome of the Baha’i Temple behind me in the distance–this time as a Wisconsin resident writing 150 miles from my home.
