I love the fall; anyone who knows me personally knows autumn is my favorite season of the year. This year was particularly colorful one for the leaves and nearby forests with bright yellows, vibrant reds and cheery oranges. The weather has a nip in the air, but isn’t too cold yet and Halloween (my favorite holiday next to Christmas) is just around the corner. Decorations line my desk at work and at home. Neighbors’ home are displayed with a yard full of tombstones and ghouls. Even at my work’s Starbucks there is a display of spider webs and gross green spiders – lit up of course! I love it!
Soon I will be dining with a friend or two and will enjoy hot cocoa – a treat at this time every year. This is the time to dine with friends and family, to scare and be scared (but in a playful way) and to begin the dance of hibernation, as the nights grow shorter and colder – at least here in the Midwest.
Each season brings us something new to look forward to. I look forward to the upcoming holidays, to being with old and new friends and even my family. And I even look forward to that day in late November when I turn another year older and so much wiser.
Enjoy this season – where ever you live. Play, dance, harvest and be thankful for all your blessings. That way more can come your way!
With Love and Light Always,
