Fall foliage, the seasonal changing of colors-brights to the demure; vibrant to rusted. Colors and leaves soon to be swept away by the wind and cold. There is one block on my street that plays out a beautiful production of this quiet transition, for five years I have been mesmerized and excited for this time of year so that I may walk down the street and watch nature take her course and prepare our environment for the coming winter. Fall is a palate cleanser, a refreshing breath of air after the hot and humid summer. A time to reflect on the year as it has transpired and prepare for the months of holidays, family and travel just around the corner.
