There's something about lacing up your boots in the rain that beats running barefoot in the sand. Piling on layers of long sleeves and losing yourself in your giant scarf. You aren't melting because the world around you is freezing, and you sit on a bench in your favorite park, surrounded by an array of warm, golden trees. Walking in puddles all day long to warm coffee cups and reading books by the fire. It's a time when the world is dying but exceeds the beauty of the months before. It's almost a season of relief.. from the summer heat or even changing out of your damp socks into the ones you just took out of the drier. Savory foods, ghosts and ghouls, cheering on your favorite teams; autumn is the time to start anew and let your worries fall in shades of red and deep purples. It's our time.
