Autumn: warm days, cool nights. Color: blue skies, startling red, orange, gold leaves.
This part of fall, when the pumpkin fields are full, when the leaves turn, before the rains come is so invigorating and wonderful.
Time to take advantage of this sacred season! (hint, they’re all sacred!)
I realized this morning as I was waking, how little I knew about my parents’ honeymoon, how little I thought to ask about them and their early days. Children are self centered little monsters aren’t we? and Parents are probably not as forthcoming as they might be. Great time to wonder, eh? Long after the parents are gone without even my sister to call and say, huh. i didn’t know about this. Life. you never know what you’re going to want to know.
But looking back, i think, well no wonder Fall was a big deal at our house. First, it’s beautiful and my artist Mom and appreciative Dad would have loved the color. But second, it reminded them of a very sweet time in their life.
But however you came to appreciate Autumn, I wish you the Peace of beautiful days and a glorious Frosty Moon in a black and starry sky.
