Autumn is finally here! The leaves are changing and it’s getting cold. The days are shorter and the air is crisp. I love the fall! It’s such a fun time. I have so many fond memories of the fall: foliage trips, hunting, late-season fishing, camping, Halloween, Thanksgiving, hay rides, apple picking, pumpkin pie, apple cider, etc. Apparently, one of my brothers-in-law also loves the fall.
At the same time, fall brings melancholy. I don’t know what it is exactly. I’m sure the shorter days and the fact that the sun is lower in the late afternoon has something to do with it. Whatever it is, I always feel blue, even while enjoying all that autumn has to offer. Hmph!
