Fall is beautiful in Latvia

It comes with turning leaves in Sigulda, my favorite Latvian town. Today, I received pictures from my parents who’ve visited my son’s family in Sigulda. Here, in North Carolina, it is still steaming hot.

Fall also comes with memories. Just recently, one of my students shared this song within our closed Facebook group. The title “Kā senā dziesmā” means “Like in an old song.” This is a beautiful song, and it’s also a beautiful memory of the Latvian singer Valters Frīdenbergs who passed away last year, on October 17. He was only 30.
