Colleen Mondor, initiator of the Summer Blog Blast Tour, Books Below the Radar, and other events, has another thing cooking today. She writes:
"The month of October introduces my favorite season; that time of year not only when the weather turns (love that) but also when there is a thread of limitless possibility in the air. I like the fact that anything could happen - that something might happen - and all you have to be is aware of it's potential existence to see the magic."
