Autumn Walk

This morning while walking I felt my shoes swishing through the first patches of dried leaves and heard them crackle under my shoes. So now it's been one whole year already since I experienced that last. That sharp moment of awareness that time had passed.

Here, everyone rakes their leaves and puts them in the required brown leaf bags for collection.
One thing I have not experienced in years that I really miss is the scent of burning autumn leaves!
I'm sure there are some in the country who have experienced raging fires this summer who would cringe at hearing me say that, but nevertheless, I do miss that scent from childhood.

I'm with you on that, Cheryl. It was almost a sacred smell, autumn incense.

Savor the day Charles...
