I Love the Fall

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~ George Eliot

I love fall, there’s a smell on the air that always says to me it’s Fall. Sometimes I catch it on the wind before the official start, sometimes not until sometime after the official start of Fall. This year it happened right on schedule and so this weekend was the first weekend of Fall for me. I did some writing, watched some football but mostly I did some cooking. One of the the things I often make this time of year is gumbo, it’s the double bonus of a nice simmering pot on the stove and always puts my head in New Orleans.

Even the weather came in line this weekend, bright sunny days, cool, good sleeping nights. Life is always a bit better for me once the Fall arrives. My entire life this has been the time of year I spend the most time outdoors. Most people like the Spring or Summer, but I prefer the Fall. As such I’m heading out next week to the desert to do some camping, take in the Orionid Meteor Shower and just spend some time clearing my head.

A short post tonight, with no real message beyond revel in the times, the people and the things you love.

I’ll end with a funny story about the photo above. This is a shot I took on a campus I worked at about seven or eight years ago. It’s one of my favorite photos and was even published in USA Today. After I took the shot I decided to share it with friends who worked at the college. I sent an email with the subject “shot on campus this weekend.” Unfortunately in a world where school shootings are a reality, that particular subject line scared the hell out of people and they let me know, oops.

Enjoy the Fall the my friends. ~ Rev Kane

    Great to read your missive, Rev. Kane. Fall has always been my favorite, too. It is a most memorable season for my clan as well.
    Enjoy the desert with it’s night skies, too!
