Autumn! My favorite time of year!
My favorite season is upon us! Today marks the Autumnal Equinox, a time of year when the divide between light and dark, day and night, is equal.
I live in Florida, so it's always been kind of iffy with the seasonal changes aspect. We don't get the changes where I've lived the way other folks seem to (leaves can have wicked colors, I know, I've seen PICTURES!), and there's no sudden slap in the face of coolness as the shift of seasons happens. But there's hope that one of these fine days it'll dip below 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and I won't feel like I'm being baked just walking outside.
However, even though the weather hasn't changed yet, this time of year is still my favorite, even more than winter (when we're almost guaranteed 2-4 weeks of below-60-degree weather). I love the way the air deepens, the tone of every evening taking on a spooky feel as each night arrives a few minutes earlier than the previous one did. It's electric and it makes my fingertips tingle with creative possibilities.
I wish all of you a wonderful Autumn, and that the season brings with it balance, rest, and relief!
