Autumn came, with wind and gold. – Henry David Thoreau
Autumn, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love the crunch of crimson leaves under my feet. I love watching golden leaves dance on the wind as they float away from their trees. I love the autum sun, so mellow compared to the intensity of the summer one. I love how brisk winds turn my cheeks bright red while I’m walking on the beach. I love Halloween. I love the bright orange, smiling jack-o-lanterns lounging in random corners of my neighborhood. I love seeing business people, dressed in serious gray suits, walking through the financial district with zombie faces, devil horns and knives stuck in their head. I love that my birthday falls four days before Halloween so the end of October feels like one big celebration.
And, most of all, I love that mother nature is showing off, in all of her glory, just how stunning she is.
