The fall season progresses, the leaves continue to drop, and the sun’s rays can now reach the forest floor easily through the breaks in the forest canopy; once thick and almost impenetrable.
Even though the earth is beginning its time of slumber, the overall feeling is one of jubilation and activity. The cool weather is advantageous to my body and spirit. I have more energy, more movement and more initiative than during the hot, humid days of summer… a great reason for declaring autumn my favorite season of the four.
One of my favorite fall activities is leaf crunching - walking noisily through the dried fallen leaves. I even caught Jake partaking of this activity today.
I feel alive!
