Today we celebrate the Autumnal Equinox, better known as the first day of autumn. With summertime behind us, I will resume sending Love Notes, and thought it fitting to do so with a poem in celebration of the turning of the season.
For many, autumn is the favorite time of the year. Leaves begin their transition to radiant colors as the summer’s heat gives way to idyllic days and cooler nights. Sweaters and warmer blankets are pulled on, and we look forward to pumpkin and apple picking and warm cider. It’s a cozy time of the year indeed!
As we welcome fall’s arrival this year, may we keep in our thoughts and prayers those who will struggle with COVID, especially due to increased time spent in indoor settings, as well as those who are unsheltered during the cooler months of the year.
Blessings to each of you,
