On today’s sunny afternoon walk, the colors were dazzling. Seemed like we could feel it in the air: fall’s final, fleeting burst of intensity. I thought of a light bulb that glows suddenly brighter before it sputters out. It won’t be long before icy winds whip these last flamboyantly hued leaves from the trees. As November yields to December, nature’s grays and browns are mustering forces.
We’ll counter by filling our homes with twinkling lights and sparkly stuff, with evergreens and berries. The Holiday Season will be upon us, ready or not.
