Winding down the autumn highways of Arkansas and Missouri a few weeks ago, I marveled at the Ozarks.  Not a lot of color yet.  It had been as dry there as here.  But, the air was crisp and the sun abnormally bright as it lost the longer days.

              It was fall – almost Halloween.  Not just a time for ghosts and goblins, but also a time that signals the end of summer and the beginning of winter.  Soon it would be time to rake leaves and hopefully fall into a pile or two, maybe insight a leaf fight.  But the change in seasons is always awe inspiring.

The cooler weather makes the holidays seem more warm and colorful.  Celebrations involve friends and family gathered around the table to share foods you just don’t get when it is warm.  A case in point is caramel.  Whether apples are dripping in it, or it is incased in a cellophane wrapper, caramel reminds me of fall and the beginning of all those calorie-laden holidays.

Here’s to autumn and all the beauty it brings.
