Farewell Fall The last autumn cOloRs

Fall has always been an interesting time. In some way with mixed feelings. As summer slowly wanes and the evenings get cooler the inevitable autumn stakes its claim.

Late summer, in the absence of extreme cold morning freezes, nature bestows us with some stunning colors in fall. This year was that gift.

We watched the green leaves morphed in the mid-tone yellows, the bright golden shades, some reds, orange hues and purple too. The blue-sky background for these scenes created so many artist-ready canvases for the beholder in presence.

Fall is also nature’s reminder of transition, of change. Each year Autumn educates us on the consistent notion of impermanence, which we often take for granted.

“Have you ever noticed that something you think is permanent, you and you alone give permanence to, through your protection of it? Have you ever stopped to even think and get a clear intellectual concept that the Self within you is the only permanent thing? That everything else is changing; that everything else has a direct wire connecting it to the realms of joy and sorrow? That is the mind.” - Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
“It's the first day of autumn! A time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!" - Winnie the Pooh

"Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love—that makes life and nature harmonize." - George Eliot
