I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”   —   Nathaniel Hawthorne

(One of the many reasons why autumn is my favorite season.  Especially when it gets a little brisk, and the leaves change from green . . . to red, gold and rust, and eventually fall to the ground.  There’s nothing like the feel, and the rustling sound, of sloshing through the crisp fallen leaves.  There’s a scent of decay in the air, but it’s not depressing in the least.  Like the smell right after a spring rain, it reminds you of the wondrous cycle of life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
