Story-A-Day #310: Autumn


There a feeling in the air, a sense of crisp freshness and finality. It is an exciting time of the year as the nights grow crisp and the leaves slowly change from summer greens to fiery autumn oranges, yellows, and reds.

I've always loved this time of year, existing as it does on the cusp of summer's sweltering heat and the penetrating chill of winter.

Part of the excitement has always been the ticking passage of time as Halloween draws ever nearer. Halloween is the one day that encapsulates all the things I like, the chills, the fear, the thrill of experiencing the unknown.

As much as this is a time of year for things to slowly die off, but to me it is indicative of the beginning of a new time.

Autumn is the nap that leads to the deep, hibernating sleep of winter and the gradual rebirth of spring.
