Autumn

I love the word Autumn.  All the seasons have their unique qualities and special flavors.  I want to say that Autumn is my favorite, however I have come to realize that my ‘favorite’ seems to be the current season.  Having said that, the special qualities of Autumn or Fall that I relish, are the rhythms of harvest, the colors, the crisp cold morning air, the brilliant early morning sky, and  gathering around the bounty to celebrate and give thanks.

Granted there are some things I don’t particularly enjoy.  Beginning the descent toward the darkest part of the year (marked by the Autumnal Equinox on September 22); the bumper crop of falling leaves, all the necessary preparations for winter and the return of bitter cold..  However, I strive to stay with the season, looking forward to Indian Summer and to celebrating the harvest with friends and family.

As the Equinox approaches I invite you to enjoy the depth and breadth of this beautiful Autumn.
