Some call it Fall and others refer to it as Autumn, but any name you may wish to label this time of the year, it is delightful in so many ways.

This celestial season marks mother nature's transition from summer into winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere) when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier.

Since summer is gone once again, it is the season when skies turn grey, some allow beautiful friendships to bloom and others turn inward, both physically and mentally.

Finally, Autumn and Fall reminds us all to prepare for the holiday season and in some parts of this wonderful country, like the modest Midwest, it signals a special period to make preparations for a bone chilling cold, windy winter and to begin preparations to hibernate.
