What do you call this time of year? Harvest? Autumn? Fall?
The sunlight turns from bright white to golden while the leaves start turning brilliant shades of red and gold. Get ready for the wind blown drifts of leaves – they crunch when you walk on them and make great craft projects if you’re a crafty sort. Anyone besides me remember building giant piles of leaves and then jumping into them? Anyone? Ok, maybe I’m the only one with a misspent youth! Wink.
For me, autumn is a time for families to gather together and friends to reconnect. All of us lead busy lives and fall signals a slight slow down of sorts – to stop and enjoy the beauty of the changing seasons – to share with each other the bounty of the harvest.
Happy autumn everyone!
