ahhhhhhhh

I LOVE FALL! Autumn, pre-winter, post-summer, whatever you want to call it, it is AWESOME. Fall has always been my favorite season (summer being my least favorite). I love the colors, the smell, the temperature variation, the birds flocking and fleeing, bulkier clothes, Halloween, high holy days, harvests, remembering marching band and football games, everything. It’s like the earth is breathing a big sigh of relief after cranking out a highly productive summer. Time to settle down and settle in.

Fall is extremely short here in Homer, so I am enjoying it as much as I can. It takes some getting used to–Midwestern fall colors are present in the trees. Here the color is on the ground with bright red fireweed and different berry bushes, tundra and muskeg plants changing color. I do like where we live now–we have so many more deciduous trees and the color combo of yellow birch leaves and green spruce is gorgeous, like some open bank vault of mother earth (whoa, that was a wild description. Kinda wanna barf now).

Enjoy autumn wherever you are. Everything is impermanent!

    I’m with you! Autumn is the best season! And at least you have vegetation that changes color… palms don’t do much :-( + it’s still freakin hot.

    correction: palms do some things. like poke you in the eyeball when you’re talking to friends and don’t notice that low hanging branch
