Autumn is an imaginary season, created by humans eager to stave off the horrors of winter with images of abundant harvests, feasts, singing and drinking and celebrating the equinox. Any sign I make about fall foods will support this illusion. Red apples, orange and yellow leaves, and the aroma of spices in the cider are there for your comfort. But I know the darkness and the ice are coming, ushered in by the ghosts of Halloween.
