Charming Chestnuts



It’s beginning to feel a bit like fall. It’s still warm and sunny, but the leaves are changing color and chestnuts are falling to the ground. Throughout the city, I’ve noticed children enthusiastically running around like little squirrels collecting them.

The other day, I went to my friend Cécile’s house for lunch. Her five-year old daughter, Hannah, had decorated the mantel in the living room with a charming display. Cécile told me using the chestnuts as décor is a typical childhood activity.

Now, I know what all those children are doing with all those chestnuts.
