There is only one season worth a shit to me – Fall. All the others suck royally. Spring is nothing but a soggy mess, summer is humid and buggy, winter is constant battle against snow and ice… Fall is the perfect season…

Autumn is cool, crisp and refreshing. The light is right, too – the sun rises and sets at good times. Yard work is waning and there’s no snow shoveling in sight. Yes, there’s leaves to rake, but there is a profound cultural acknowledgement and acceptance of that. It is considered a joy

As a kid, I loved the start of school. There was something about those first few weeks that were almost spiritual. The weather was turning, you life was fresh and new, those magical school supplies… it was, somehow, a perfect feeling. Today is in the 70’s. Crisp and sunny. We’ll get another blast of heat and humidity at some point, but the feeling of fall is in the air. Time to go shopping for pumpkins and mums…
