A little autumnal greeting for AEDM #2! Fall is my favorite season, and my list is a country mile long as to why. The trees throw colorful parties in the sky and on the ground. Sweaters and layers are still a novelty, and my tights don't have holes in the toes yet. Blue skies and blasts of warm sunshine still stop by to say hi. The crappy days remind me that it will soon be time to hunker down like a hermit and hide and become embittered by winter. How I ever lived in climates without the complete change of seasons I'll never know. When I was younger, it didn't bother me; I was too occupied to notice. Now I need to experience every quarter of the cycle; to whine about the lousy weather; to look forward to & delight in the good; and finish the year knowing that I've fully lived through the range of emotions that the earth has to offer.
