Writer's Block: Autumn Begins

Autumn starts today! How do you personally sense the change in seasons? Is Autumn more of a season in itself, or a transition period?

YEAH!!!! I LOVE autumn. I miss Autumn since moving from Connecticut. For me the transition is the passing of the season, moving from hot Summer to cooler Fall. And of course - the onset of WINTER is coming!!!

What I love (and miss the most about living on the East Coast) is the visible change of the season. I miss seeing the trees gradually turn and fade from bright green to the soft and sometimes startling browns, reds, yellows, and oranges. Too me, it reminds me of raking leaves, making piles and my brother and I playing in them, only for Dad to have to rake them back up. :)

I love the sudden need for a jacket and the days getting a bit longer in some ways. Of course, today, it was the high 90s outside. Blah! Bring on the cold fronts!
