Golden Days of Autumn

To me, autumn is about a fresh start, taking time to consider my next move, slowing down, and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. But with it comes a certain sense of dread as winter lurks around the corner. The geese head south for the winter and as they fly out of sight, I hear them honking ‘So long, suckers! See you next spring!’  It’s snowing outside as I write this. I know winter’s not yet here to stay but still, this sudden drop in temperature has got me feeling down. I love fall, I can even force myself to kind of like winter, but right now it’s neither here nor there, only cold, wet, and miserable.  I can only take a deep breath, hold my head up high, and keep on goingAnd eat a gigantic piece of cake.
