Welcome back, dear Fall

I’m not sure if the fact that I was born in September is a reason to love you more, but I really missed you, gray autumn.

Since the summer I felt that something did not fit in the decor. The breathable heat, the scorching sun and the sweat made me want you more and more.

Many people become nostalgic with the arrival of your season, autumn. But I don’t feel that at all. I love the sweet expression of wind after the drizzle of summer, the cool splashes of rain entering the skin burnt by the sun, the sky steeped by clouds.

Maybe you feel what I feel, dear autumn. In a way, our feelings are reciprocal at this time of life, feeling together an unexpected sadness.

Like me, you change the shades of your soul to more serious and dry colors, from light green to dark brown, orange and red. We mature together in the monotonous dance of life, a long-desired season.

From the early hours of the morning you bring cold and moist shivers, sprinkling mist over the summer bedding, possessing the entire world. As a hesitant young girl you play with the temperatures and make changes to the world at your leisure without thinking about the consequences.

So while the morning is cold and ignorant, the noon brings unruly sunshine and high temperatures. In the evening it is much harsher than in the morning, the degrees falling far below the thermometer.

Nothing compares to a cup of hot tea, sipped intensely in front of the fire that burns the wet wood. Even the mohair in the cardigan braided by the mother has its place and handles the skin frightened by low temperature.

I like the sound of wilted leaves freshly fallen from the trees and their unmistakable scent. I would play all day hiding in the dry garden behind the house, enjoying myself as a child of your gifts.

The aroma of ripe apples, the sound of walnuts tumbling on the ground from the old tree, the cherries full and tasty in the fall, the burgundy plums and black grapes, all are gifts brought by you, rich autumn.

The strong smell of resin and wood, the stratified wood in algorithmic rows on the thick wall belonging to the house fence. The hard working people preparing for winter healthy and delicious preparations, all of which are part of your favorite activities in the fall.

The same activities are repeated every season, but each year is special in its own way and you make this possible every fall. Thank you for being here!

  1. Dear Katherine, Thank You for all of the kind interest in my Blog! I was looking to contact you via email but didn’t see listed here for you so I’m adding mine to this comment so that you can feel free to send your email address to me. I will write to you at more length that way and would like to get to know you more! Your Blog is very interesting and professional, but you also make me laugh with the Night Shift Photos, I had worked many years at a few different professions working all crazy hours and sometimes I only had a couple of hours sleep!
    I hope you are doing well and just send me a note via email and I’ll write to you immediately.
    God Bless You! 🙏 😊 💐 ❤️

    1. Hello, dear blogger!
      Thank you for your comment first of all, and I really appreciate and like your posts as well.

      I am doing well, thank you, I hope you are doing the same.
      I don’t really get too much time to type via email so I would appreciate if you will write me in here, on the blog.

      Thank you for the kind thoughts, have a wonderful weekend ahead! 🙂

      1. 🙂 Katherine, Yes, all the same to you; and after some thought I do have much more to add to this blog of yours firstly for your sake and then anyone who reads it!
        I think we all get melancholy or feel a sense of drudgery in our sometimes overly mechanical, “going through the motions” and routines of just living a plain temporary physical life! Like the old adage of, “getting from point A to point B!” But, therein lays the crux of the matter or question my dear Friend, what is truly our destination? Is it to merely continue on living like a gerbil on the running wheel or as mice through a maze! Or are we looking deeper into the heart of our simple existence here on earth to see the profound reality that much, much more is going on than meets the eye! The Holy Scriptures say “Seek” and you will find, (7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-12), and I’ve learned though time and some very painful experiences that at times in my life I got too sure of myself, basically allowing myself to get lost in my own delusions of contemporaneous material fulfillment’s, only to find myself on the other side of that process as being more empty and unfulfilled than when I began on my escapade or journey into “going it alone.” I know now that until any of us actually awaken to the fact that the Almighty made all this possible to begin with and that we are simply here to fulfill His plan, we can go off in a ninety-nine different directions and never find one that brings any lastly or substantive meaning, purpose and enlightenment; like being on a “fool’s errand” if you will, and therefore in seeking we must seek the “Divine and Unseen” in order to elevate our own petty fractional lives of great need above the fray and into the light of real understanding. Think and meditate on what I say and then let me know if I touch a nerve or stir an emotion in your heart.
        Blessings and peace to you.
        See a nerve got touched in me, thus the long comment which I’m sure is now my reputation preceding me, to all who know me.
