Happy November! Now that we have turned the page of the calendar, it seems that the autumn weather has finally arrived. Time for the snuggly sweaters and warm socks! Have you noticed that I have changed the title of this feature? It now better reflects what I hope to say in this opening to the East End Experience. Life is a journey…one that deserves to be enjoyed and savored. Stop and smell the roses, or the pumpkin spice latte, if you prefer. It’s not a race, but if you must treat it so, make it a marathon. Whatever you do – remember to enjoy it! The little things really do matter, so hug your kid, call your mom, pet the dog, and just breeeeaaathe. You will feel better for it, I promise. ~JBM
