October

The month we dig our fingernails into the calendar, and slowly slide and screech our way down.

From daylight to darkness.

From warmth to chill.

From green to reds and yellows and oranges to brown.

To November. 

Ugh.

    Thank you for validating my feelings about autumn.

    Serious ugh.

  3. Autumn. That’s when we start thinking pumpkin pie, and apple cider, and fairs. November is too close to winter and winter equals depression……blecch.

    Ditto to all! I am glad I am not alone.

    Thank you.

    You do have a way with words, Gerry. Looks like I’m the lonely one. I love October through March. There’s a brightness, clarity and coziness in the fall and winter you can’t get in the summer. Some people have seasonal disorder when the cold and darkness brings depression….I actually perk up. I have more energy and smile a lot more. I just love it! And I’m loving October more this year because my daughter is getting married next Friday!
