I’m always a little sad when summer is over. It means I get to see my baby son a little less as he has to do that school thing. He just started 6th grade and his complaints have been endless. He was quite offended that they gave him homework the very first day of school. I keep reminding him that now as an eleven year old, he has to use his brain more. I always laugh when I tell him this. But I have severely digressed.
I was born in the springtime. I love east coast showers and the smell of blossoming green. Although, I have to admit that I suffer from horrendous allergies in the springtime. Have you ever seen Will Smith in the movie Hotch and how he swells up? That’s me. And while I love my birth season as it connotes rejuvenation and things to come, I love the autumn season.
I love the sound of crunching leaves. I love the changing colors. I love the slight whiff of the cold that is to come. I love Halloween and have already ordered my costume. Although I don’t eat turkey, I love Thanksgiving. The fall gets us thinking and reflecting. It gets us motivated to end the year right. We start planning how the next year will bring about good change. With all that in mind, may the autumn bring forth good sense and vibes.
