as much as I love summer, autumn is the season that really speaks to me. The days are still warm, but the nights are cool enough to open the windows and fall asleep to a lovely breeze. The changing landscape as the leaves turn to brilliant shades of orange, red, and yellow is always a sight to behold. Fall also signifies new opportunities and fresh starts, and the articles in this issue are filled with interesting people, incredible stories, and innovative ideas to motivate you to try something different, and embrace fall and all of its glory. I find it incredible that after eleven years of publishing WWM, we are still uncovering new, thought- provoking topics and finding amazing people to interview who live and work in our towns. Our editor spends a great deal of time planning each issue and developing stories that are compelling in their own right and also fit perfectly with all of the articles as a whole. Of course, I love every issue but, like the fall season, this one is a particular favorite. Our "Ten Tips for Climbing Out of a Rut" has some fabulous ideas to add more dimension to your days. Even if you're not in a rut, you'll most likely find something in our tips to spark your interest—whether it's a new volunteer opportunity, learning a foreign language, or trying a new exercise regimen. Another place to find inspiration in this issue is in our Face to Face profile of Wellesley resident Carol Chaoui. An avid, competitive runner for most of her life, Carol didn't let a cancer diagnosis prevent her from completing her eighth Boston Marathon and raising more than $73,000 for metastatic breast cancer research. She has also encouraged others to take up the sport by establishing the Wellesley Couch-to-5K group and the popular Turkey Trot, held every Thanksgiving. Carol really is a "wonder woman," and I know you'll enjoy reading more of her story. I also love reading about strong, creative women who have discovered new careers while working hard at being stay-at-home moms. Wellesley's Keri Claiborne Boyle took advantage of her vivid imagination and reinvented herself as a children's book author with the publication of Teddy the Dog, the first in a three-book series featuring a sassy but lovable pooch who also happens to have his own blog and line of apparel. Perhaps Keri's story will help you discover the next chapter in your life. And if it's a scary story you're looking for to get you in the mood for Halloween, look no further than our Last But Not Least pages where Liz Sower provides an excerpt from one of her spooky tales, featuring Wellesley.
