Watching the press

Shana and Jim and I went with Kelpie to Staunton to visit Willow and Crow. We went out in the evening to an event called Chocolate and Champagne -- local stores stayed open late and served chocolate (though no champagne because each store would have needed a liquor license). The most interesting thing was passing the printing plant for the local paper, and watching through the window as it got printed. It was the first time I've actually seen a web press, which sucks up paper from an enormous roll, prints the pages, cuts them, folds them, and spits out them out as sections of the newspaper.

The slow October flame
rages through November leaves,
every tree a torch.
Burn then, my heart.
