Day 171: Falling into the chill

Updated: Dec 31, 2021


Summer used to be my favorite season.  I think that’s because it meant no school…or at least a long break…or days spent by the pool.  

As I’ve gotten older though, I’ve learned to appreciate each season for what they represent…what they bring…how they make me feel.

I know it’s a little early to settle into Fall but on such a crisp day I can’t help but get a little excited for the incoming season.  

Fall means football…camp fires…leaves…sweaters…scarfs…boots (the cute kind, not the snow kind).  It brings a more grounded feeling as I start to prepare for the winter months…consume more warm beverages…thicker beers.

I envision more reds, oranges, dark yellows, deep blues and purples.


Everything feels richer…a little heavier…more grounded.

There’s something about Fall air that makes dreams a little clearer.  It’s like the heavy, humid air of the Summer has lifted and something cleaner, lighter, crisper comes into view.
