Looking Forward to Fall/Autumn
I wanted to get back into the swing of the new school year and see my friends again after the long Summer break. It was that time of year when the school activities and changing schedules were just beginning and the farming activities were coming to a close. Dad would make preparations for one last harvest in November and then clean and store the machinery and tools until the next Spring.
Autumn (interchangeably known as Fall) officially arrives around September 22nd. This exciting season brings harvests, holidays, shorter days, and crisp temperatures. Fall/Autumn reveals its fullness by splashing the trees with bold color and littering the fading lawns with fallen leaves that resemble multicolored confetti.
For me, the crackling sounds of Fall/Autumn seem to say, “Get ready. Get ready for what’s ahead.” Nature prepares for her long Winter’s rest and teaches you and me to do the same. Fall/Autumn gives us time to gather, organize and store. It’s the season to stack firewood, bring out sweaters, scarves and mittens, and fill the pantry. Come along, let’s seek the season’s surprises.
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus, 1913-1960, French author and philosopher
