AT HOME IN HUMBOLDT
School is IN. The obligatory first day pics are flooding social media… The Cal Poly students are back roaming around Arcata in little packs wearing their bright white sneakers and the not-yet-Fall feels are everywhere, with drippy cloud cover seeming to whisper that the seasons are changing. Indeed, the tomatoes are ripe, the pumpkin vines are full, and it all seems right on time.
