AUTUMN IS HERE!
Autumn, often known as Fall, officially arrived Sept. 22. Autumn can be associated with the transition from warm weather to cold weather, a season of harvest or the Halloween season. Autumn has been associated with melancholy since the summer is leaving and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Autumn is also the start of a new school year for primary and secondary schools. Television networks begin to market their new series and show new episodes of old favorites. In 1997, “Autumn” was one of the top 100 names for girls in the United States.
But, in the Great Smoky Mountains, the area we are blessed to call home, the sky becomes a deeper shade of blue, the air is crisp, the aroma of wood smoke becomes evident and a color change in the leaves occurs. We see pumpkins, beautiful foliage and a transition into another season. We see tourism pick up during this time; people will be flocking to the mountains to catch a glimpse of the beauty we are so fortunate to enjoy every day.
Then, our thoughts turn to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The end of another year is right around the corner. We ask ourselves where the time has gone. Then reality hits and we realize it really does go by quickly. Appreciate each day and take procrastination out of your vocabulary because we truly are only here for a little while.
