Autumn…a second Spring!

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”

– Stanley Horowitz

Almost overnight, the landscape around us blooms with the most incredible colors.  Especially here in New York as September departs and October takes center stage.

We all need a change, a departure from the chaos of daily news items and endless social media debates.  Time to focus on the holidays ahead, however we celebrate, and enjoy the wonder of what life gives us. 

Fall isn’t a death, as some might have you believe.  Rather, it is a celebration of life which surrounds us along with the preparation for somewhat of a second chance as a new year approaches.   Each step on some crunchy fallen leaf brings back childhood memories of jumping in huge piles of what Autumn was leaving behind, of crisp apples and cider, of Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Each step reminds us that new beginnings await us in just a few short weeks.  The cycle of life continues on its inevitable journey as nature says good-bye for this year.

Celebrate the season!

From Mama Kat’s Workshop…10 reasons why you’re glad it’s Fall.

There are just so many lovely quotes about Fall, and the photos…breathtaking.  For my 10, I decided to share some of my favorites.

I’m thankful to live in an area of our country where Autumn often takes center stage with its magical display.  And, I meant what I stated, about needing change, an escape even, from all of the current worldly debate.  If we all took a step back and reflected on just how quickly this year has passed and the amount of time that was spent on being so completely adversarial with each other…we just might take the time to enjoy the fleeting moments of this and every season.
