|Now that's red (and yellow)|
When I was out walking last week, I saw this incredible bush (or tree, I'm not sure) with the yellow leaves behind it. I know that this time of year we get some of the most beautiful colors ever, and this caught my eye and I knew I wanted to share it with my readers.When they get to this stage, it won't be long before they fall. It's wonderful to be able to preserve the moment with my trusty iPhone camera.
I've watched three of the seven episodes of The Queen's Gambit on Netflix and am enjoying it immensely. The series is based on a book by Walter Tevis, written in 1983. As you might expect by the title, it's all about a female chess champion.
The Queen's Gambit is a fictional story that follows the life of an orphan chess prodigy, Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), during her quest to become the world's greatest chess player while struggling with emotional issues and drug and alcohol dependency. The story begins in the mid-1950s and proceeds into the 1960s.
I will probably get ahold of the book once I finish the series so I can compare the novel with the series. I am very impressed by Anya Taylor-Joy, who plays Beth Harmon. She makes the character come alive for me. It's also pretty wonderful to have a diversion from the news of the day. I am tentatively optimistic about things, but I'll sure feel a lot better once we get through the next few weeks and months.
