Happy Autumn
I am always sad to see summer pass, but I do love the fall. Especially in New England. I grew up in Texas and drew pictures of trees with colorful leaves fluttering down, but the truth was I had never seen it. In Texas the leaves turned brown and fell. Here it is spectacular. Driving to work becomes amazing. When the morning and evenings are crisp and the afternoons perfect I find myself wanting to bake, go to the library, take long walks and create. I feel like I gather inspiration to keep me through the winter months as the squirrels gather nuts. It is the time to take it all in, to listen before the big quiet arrives and color is a memory.
