Autumn is my favorite season for writing. There’s a heady mix of activity and introspection as I get ready for the year’s end while looking ahead to the winter. The steel gray of the sky contrasting with the brightly colored leaves holds a particular creative magic. The weather is cool and crisp, perfect for activity or for sitting inside with a book and a cup of tea. The shorter daylight hours leave more time for dreaming.

This year, I’m going to try to slow down and savor the autumn. Holidays are approaching, and I know life will get busier before it settles into winter. There’s always so much going on, but I know I’ll miss out on more if I try to do too much. As the days wind down, I’m making an effort to slow my pace, to stop and look, to really see everything and everyone surrounding me.
