The leaves fall, the fruits are harvested. Ah, I can't wait for Fall to arrive.
Now, Summer is full of things I enjoy: pool days, sunshine, lemonade, relaxed attitudes, baseball, and American pride. But that season has run its course and as the summer sun grows dim, I can't help but to get anxious for Fall. I am anticipating it daily; to feel a storm brewing, to see the leaves turn, to take a deep breath of the crisp air, to smell the pumpkin. I had an affair with Summer, but I am married to the Fall. I can't wait for it's return. I miss it.
Last year I came up with this little comparison to illustrate my love for the season, a refresher:
I like Fall as much as I like the color red... and that is a lot. Here is a list of colors I like, and the order in which I like them:
2. (intentionally left blank)
209. All other
colors- they all tie for two-hundred and ninth place.
The point is I like red that much more then all the others. Same with Fall.
I am also much easier in the fall. That's right, you heard me, easy. No, not that kind of easy... it's just that the fall evokes a sense of adventure and contentment in me that can't be found any other time of the year. It is easier to get me out, to try new things, to be complacent.
So, to Summer: I bid you farewell, at some point in the near future when the snow falls I will miss you madly, but in the meantime... to Fall: welcome, I have been waiting.
