Gathering Season

I’m sure you saw it coming- at least one month that highlights food.  Can I really help talking about food?  It’s only what sustains us and that our lives ultimately revolve around.  Even if we don’t grow our own food or enjoy cooking it, everything we do in some way or another leads us back to food.


I love this time of year.  The weather is still warm, but slowly cooling down in the evenings and the light has changed to a golden glow throughout the day- no more of that overly harsh and bright light that we have during the summer. It’s almost like the sun’s dimmer switch has been turned down.  The perfect light for filming without having to use a lot of lighting equipment to dull or brighten the scene.

This is also the time of year that we gather in our food to get us through the winter months.  Could I be any more obvious about how I chose my theme for this month?  Probably not, but I’m not apologizing.  I love the variety of produce in the farmers market and the idea that things are winding down slowly from summer.  As much as I love summer, I’m always ready to pull out my fall sweaters and soon it will be time to do just that.  But for now, I will enjoy my last few weeks of playing out doors in lighter layers and feel thankful for the harvest that is being hauled in from the fields- even if I’m not physically doing it myself.

I love food in all of its complexities and now seems the perfect time to celebrate this all important element of our lives.
