After summer ends

Autumn started this week, a fact that I deftly tried to ignore in deference to my need to remain optimistic. Perhaps that's harsh: I really do like the season, as there's a texture and a feel to it that both reach down deep into my soul.

Still, that doesn't mean I can't look at something I shot in the heat of summer without a bit of a sigh at what's been left behind. It was a good season, filled with good times and good people. I suspect Autumn has similar moments in store for us all, even if they're served up in a slightly different-looking and feeling package.

Your turn: What does autumn have in store for you?

Living in a different part of the continent I feel a bit differently about Autumn. I'm so ready for it after 100 days of over 100 degrees this Summer. Bring it on!

Autumn has come and gone here in the Frozen North... the trees are bare, the ground is freezing at night and the wind is whispering of snows soon to fall. There's a rustling magic in the dead-space between autumn and winter, a breath of cold air on the back of my neck. This is the season of un-doing, a powerful shift from trees well dressed for summer now stripped of all foliage and withdrawing all energy to their root systems.

In a way, I think I do the same as autumn comes to a close.
