"Lots of people say that they fall in love in the spring. Not me. I always fell in love in the autumn.It is just the most romantic... sexy... desperate [time]..." (- Space Above and Beyond)
I love autumn. I'm sure there are people in the world who do not have an affinity for the season into which they were born, but I'm not one of them. Summer is easy to love and winter easy to hate, but spring and autumn...that's when all the interesting stuff happens. When I was little my mom told me that the leaves changing colour was Mother Nature "changing her dress". That's quite the wardrobe you've got there, lady.
Here, I made a haiku about it:
Mother of Nature,
you make dying foliage
so very chic
School has begun again, Halloween is around the corner, and there's a distinctive crispness to the air that I love. And this is, hands down, the best season for fashion. Change is in the air, and possibilities...for learning new things, taking new chances, and coming up with a truly original Halloween costume. And though Calgary's autumn is brief and mostly shades of yellow, I'll take whatever I can get.
But I still miss red.
