One of my favorite writer-bloggers, Katrina Kenison wrote a lovely piece about October days this morning. It made me reflect on my own memories:
After forty years in Florida, I still long for Autumn. I miss its golden beauty, its smells of apples, bonfires and crunchy leaves. The sounds of geese honking and leaves skittering across the lawn.
As our nest emptied this fall, I realized our Autumn is upon us. Though I miss my children- their small selves, this time of year, I relish this new beginning.
