The leaves are turning and the weather is finally great for walks in crisp, cool, intoxicating air.
The seasons give us lessons - dormant rest in winter, the eager new life of spring, full passion in summer and the brilliance of autumn. Autumn offers final lessons, closing remarks and last-minute opportunities. Autumn reminds us of the importance of those “door-knob statements:” comments made in the leaving (pun intended), those moments of good-bye when the heart finally speaks.
Our lives parallel this autumn season: our later years may bring the best of life.
