Maybe it’s because we do not have celebrations like Halloween or Thanksgiving to look forward to where I live, maybe it’s the rapid change in light, or my kitchen countertop that is slowly turning into a pharmacy shelf, but the transition from summer into winter has not been easy for me this year. And the only thing that helps me get through the darker days, besides blowing on a warm cup of tea and thumbing through favorite books, is to pay attention to the beautiful colors around me. The warmer shades of yellow and orange, the wine and roast-colored hues. They all remind me to look beyond the circumstances of life, and delight in the beauty of the simple things.
Today show us your fall colors.
