MendoMoments: The Nearness of Autumn Comes Into Focus on the Mendocino Bluffs

[Photograph provided by Sheana Voltz]

Sheana Voltz took a stroll along the Mendocino Bluffs this last Monday, taking in the marine air and the distant hiss of the surf, and came to a realization: fall is near.

Voltz was struck by the “contrasting colors of the sea and the fall colors on the bluff.” She said that, “The blackberries, the wild radish seed pods, the fried egg plant flowers just scream fall.”

Voltz reminds us of the beauty of transition, the willingness to embrace change. Summer’s ending is the beginning of the cycle starting anew.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
