What I love about autumn/fall












Transitional seasons are my favourite. If I look on the surface it is a time when you can see things physically changing...the leaves, the air, the wardrobes. But when I actually think about it, I like transitional seasons for more deeper reasons. They bring with them a renewed hope, a sensation in the pit of your stomach that things can change, a sigh of relief that the past is being left behind and the future is being embraced.

Honestly, the blooming of the first flowers in spring and the reddening of the first leaves in Autumn/fall are enough to give me an existentialist crisis that other people may find ridiculous...but I do not think it is wrong to be hyper-aware of nature and of your humanity, or the "larger picture," so to speak, that we lose in our race for survival in a capitalistic world. Others may also think I am too optimistic. But I understand that these months are in fact transitional and that the leaves will fall and the flowers will wither...and again another existentialist crisis ensues.

Here are my favourite things about Fall/Autumn:

1. Walking on crunchy piles of leaves
2. Taking a walk and breathing in the crisp air
3. Halloween
4. A new school semester (I know some of you just cringed...I like learning!)
5. Being able to drink more cups of teas in a day
6. Getting to wear slippers
7. Getting to turn on the fireplace with a cup of tea in hand while wrapped in my warmest house throw
8. Getting to layer my clothes
9. Touques!
10. Hockey season is back

  14. I agree with you that the transitional seasons can bring about such a different energy. You're hopeful for better times and you also reflect on what has recently happened. I'm not a fan of spring but I love the fall. Everything from the crisp air to the vibrant colors - it's perfect!

  16. Kind of cliche but I love pumpkin everything! I also like how the colors change. I love the fall season color palette of oranges and browns.
