Autumn leaves began to fall today........a cold front moved through last night........forty degree nights, seventy degree days, azure skies......I'm in heaven. The air is crisp and clean and you can see the color starting to develop in the trees. My energy level is the best it has been in some time.
“Fall colors are funny. They’re so bright and intense and beautiful. It’s like nature is trying to fill you up with color, to saturate you so you can stockpile it before winter turns everything muted and dreary.”
I think there is truth in that quote, maybe the reason so many of us love fall.......it is that outburst of beauty and color that over powers the senses before the barren darkness of winter appears.
I hope that where ever you are tonight, if you are like me and fall is your favorite season......that you have a magnificent one this year.......I hope the colors are blindingly beautiful, that the blue of the sky takes your breath, and the briskness of the air energizes you more than ever. Enjoy the earthiness of the autumn foods, the sweetness of the fruits and every chill that morning brings.
Get those boots and sweaters out, enjoy them while you can. May autumn last as long as winter allows.
