hello autumn!

autumn has arrived once again... a lot of people don't like autumn, or maybe don't get it. maybe i'm 'strange', but i love it. i love the brisk winds and the cold rain and the leaves changing colour. the rain especially... it has such a cleansing effect. i love running in the rain! the autumn is a time for parts of you to die and wither away, but also to hibernate and sit and read and ponder and learn new things. it's like sowing the seeds of the new sides of you that will flourish and flower in the spring and shine in the summer. it feels quite natural to me to reflect the seasonal changes in my own life, and to follow the rhythms of mother nature. so it with great pleasure that i welcome autumn back for another year...

You're right - there is no doubt something about autumn that makes us stop, slow down, and reflect. You couldn't have said it better when you said a part of us "withers" away...I had never thought of it that way, now that might explain why each autumn I feel more nostalgic and engulfed in sadness. Sadness, because we change - it's almost like for a temporary lapse of time we don't even know who we are.
