Autumn comes as a shock sometimes. One week it’s summer, the next it’s gone. The air turns a certain kind of cold that carries on it a feeling of change and a natural sense of foreboding. Leaves begin to wither from their branches and litter the floor, a familiar rustling accompanies the whisper of the wind.
But each season carries a certain beauty, and autumn is no exception.
Its beauty is unique, a wild contrast to the vibrancy of spring, to the warmth of sunlight washing over the world again as landscapes explode with blossom.
Instead it brings a transformation of a different kind as greens turn to deep reds and subtle browns. A necessary decay.
It’s a reassuring comfort that the cycle of nature is constant, that seasons come and go, bad weather turns to good, after storms come calm.
Autumn is a time for reflection and forethought, to embrace the constant change.
So wrap up warm and go outside.
Take a moment, and enjoy the autumn palette.
