Not only is "Autumn" one of my favorite words, it is also my favorite season as of today!
For me it is a time for new beginnings...change, which energizes me. Nothing got my juices flowing when I was a child than the first day of school. I got a new dress and a new pair of shoes. It couldn't get any better.
We started school on the day after Labor Day. I saw friends whom I hadn't seen over the Summer. I went to a new classroom and a new teacher with new things to learn.
There is a certain smell in the air. I can open my doors and windows without having to deal with Spring* pollen...or the Winter cold. With the windows open I can smell the air and hear the sounds in my neighborhood. Right now I hear a leaf blowers and cars turning into their driveway coming home from work.
The trees change colors...at least most years, but not this year. We had a dry Summer. Now the leaves are turning brown and immediately falling to the ground.
My husband rakes the leaves...yea, Chuck!
For those sports fans-the football season and the World Series...and for the couch potatoes: New TV shows/series replace all of the Summer reruns.
Autumn inspires my art!
