I love the autumn. I wait all year for it and savor every moment of it. I love the colors and the sounds and especially the smells. I love the smell of leaves as they crackle beneath my feet in the dark. I love the smell of apple pie, mulled cider and slow cooked meals. The autumn is to me what the spring is to most everything else. It is my time of rebirth, life, motion. I come out of my summer hibernation. The warm summer weather slows me down and makes me lazy. I can’t function right in the heat. Now the days are getting cooler and I’m ready to go. Where, I’m not sure but I’m ready.
