When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. Every season has its upside; autumn has a particular beauty to it. Lovers of fall revel in its unique ability to turn the world into one big canvas with nature’s paintbrush. Not only is the temperature more to most people’s liking, but fall offers the opportunity to put to good use the wisdom gained from the summer and previous months of the year. The busier schedule balanced by the calm, temperate weather seems to produce a tranquil assurance as well. There is just something majestic and peaceful about this time of year. The earlier sunsets signal the need to get some much needed rest and the brilliant beauty of the fields, trees and fruits letting the world know they are ready to be enjoyed by our eyes and our taste buds. Mmm, Grammies apple pie!
As fall works its way into full bore, I’d thought I’d share a few of the things I look forward to as autumn begins. And while it’s easy to continue as if nothing has changed, by being conscious of Mother Nature’s cycle it can wake us up to appreciate what each season has to offer and be sure to make the most of all its bounty while it’s upon us.
