Autumn is my favorite time of year. I even composed an instrumental piece which is an impression of what it means to me. Impossibly blue sky, contrasting with the foliage, the light breezes, the crispness in the air, and the overall timeless feeling of being out in nature in the midst of autumn.
This is the time of year my totem, raccoon is bulking up for winter. I have to watch, or I follow suit. :)
It's the Summer sighing before the snow spritzes.
Growing up in San Diego, I didn't have much in the way of fall colors, but now that I live in the northeast--big difference. I've learned to appreciate how much autumn has to give, and I look forward to this time each year when it rolls around again.
