Bring on Autumn

     I am happy to say Good-bye to August.  I wish I could say Goodbye to all this 100+ weather we are having here in So. California, but looks like we still have a bit more before Autumn arrives.  Autumn is my favorite time of year.  I love the colors, the cooler weather, the holidays, and Football.

There is just something so peaceful and beautiful about Autumn.  The crispness in the air, just the feel of it.  I look forward to it.

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.”

Edwin Way Teale

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

George Eliot

“The season for enjoying the fullness of life — partaking of the harvest,
sharing the harvest with others, and reinvesting and saving portions
of the harvest for yet another season of growth.”

–   Denis Waitley

“Smoke hangs like haze over harvested fields,
The gold of stubble, the brown of turned earth
And you walk under the red light of fall
The scent of fallen apples, the dust of threshed grain
The sharp, gentle chill of fall.
Here as we move into the shadows of autumn
The night that brings the morning of spring
Come to us, Lord of Harvest
Teach us to be thankful for the gifts you bring us …”

Autumn Equinox Ritual

“I am rich today with autumn’s gold,
All that my covetous hands can hold;
Frost-painted leaves and goldenrod,
A goldfinch on a milkweed pod,
Huge golden pumpkins in the field
With heaps of corn from a bounteous yield,
Golden apples heavy on the trees
Rivaling those of Hesperides,
Golden rays of balmy sunshine spread
Over all like butter on warm bread;
And the harvest moon will this night unfold
The streams running full of molten gold.
Oh, who could find a dearth of bliss
With autumn glory such as this!”

    I completely agree. I am ready to get cozy. Ready to go pumpkin and apple picking and bake for the rest of the day. I love it!
