I used to hate to see the end of summer but realized my attitude was ruining a good thing. Now I see the coloured leaves and ripe apples still on the branches, and see the beauty of this wonderful season we call autumn. The cool air makes a walk in the woods a pleasure. No bugs, no heat (which is a good thing, I remind myself), just quiet reflection. I say quiet because the tourists are gone and our walking trails are now only occupied by the occasional local accompanied by their choice of companion - a best friend, either canine or human.
I think about the people who have no home to live in and what it must be like to look ahead to the approaching cold weather. Sigh.... I guess I'll have to work on my attitude some more. I still prefer summer. :)
