THIS is what autumn looks like.
We are just back from a trip to Colorado. And I have to say the difference was almost jarring. First of all, they have something back in Colorado that is nearly absent here in Florida. It's called, "Seasons". In other states, a person just never knows what is going to happen day to day, sometimes hour to hour. In Colorado the air was chilly, crisp you might say, down right cold sometimes. And the colour is magnificent.
Not quite like back east though. When we lived in Connecticut, in autumn, driving up our street on a sunny afternoon, the many shades of purple, red, gold, yellow and just the sheer volume of trees could make the street appear to be on fire. It was breathtaking.
I don't think I realized when we moved here to Florida, how nostalgic I would become for more seasonal delineation than an uptick in tourists. It's still very green. Things are still blooming. Nothing has changed.
I will be okay. I will adjust. I do love the sunshine, I always have, and I dearly love being so close to the water. But I wonder how I will adapt to winter? Oh dear, I don't have to shovel anymore. Such a pity, what a shame. (heehee)
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
