Re: “Daily Post: Autumn Leaves”

Changing colors, dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth — or with dread?


If you know me, you know that I like everything in moderation and balance. So, I think it would be un­sur­pris­ing when I say that I like spring and autumn a lot more than winter and summer.

Au­tumn is actually my favorite season. Based off what I just said, it’s obvious that my favorite would be either spring and au­tumn. Spring is nice and exciting and foretelling of growth and expansion, while au­tumn is like the evening of a day when you look back at what you’ve accomplished and feel the relaxation of winding down and resting for the night.

Although I like getting inspired to complete great things and finish great projects, I like seeing the results of them even more. Autumn seems to reflect the moment when everything is done and you know that the pleasure of your completed work is on its way. It signals the calm that’s about to come, and I think the calm and peace is very important after a hard day of work.

Less figuratively and more literally, I also like autumn because it’s when my seasonal allergies end. I usually have allergies around August and early September, and autumn is right about the time when my allergies go away. On top of that, the weather is fitting for me to wear a t-shirt, long jeans, and boots – probably my favorite outfit because it’s so simple and comfortable, yet neat.

So, going back to the prompt, autumn actually doesn’t fill my heart with warmth – it actually cools it down. But of course, I like cooling down rather than warming up, so that’s a good thing.
