Wanted

Syrup.

Maple syrup.

Is New England out of trees? I was there last weekend and saw lots of orange and yellow and red fall foliage in the brilliant sunlight.

Did not expect I’d return to Virginia and find this empty shelving. Why make waffles, why make pancakes, why get out of bed if there is no maple syrup?

It looks like Fall outside, but inside all is empty, our waffles crisp and dry, our eyes moist with tears.

Folks: climate change is serious and sap harvesters everywhere are struggling. This is a crisis.
