Yesterday was the beginning of autumn, my favorite season. Like most years, it really didn’t seem very fall like…at least on the surface. But, there is no mistaking the clear pale blue color of the sky in September. The change in lighting gives the landscape a slightly cooler look than summer. A small change, but a definite change. Also noticeable was the heavy dew on my car that I hadn’t seen during the summer months. The changes are subtle but present even at the equinox.
For me, Autumn comes as a welcome relief from the heat and humidity of summer. My creative juices tend to languish in the summer and reawaken as the mornings get cooler and the days get shorter. In early Fall, I begin to think about my favorite holidays Halloween, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. There is still time to perfect some unique meal or craft something special for celebrating or make plans to gather loved ones together.
Happy Autumn!! Wishing you all a wonderful Fall full of creativity and love!
