Changing of the Seasons

The leaves have begun to adorn their autumn colors, the sun sinks away earlier and earlier each night, and suddenly, the morning air is accompanied with a sweater appropriate chill.What a great time of year to go out and explore, to go to bed early, and to find different ways to stay warm. There is no better feeling to me then staying warm amongst crisp autumn temperatures. It seems impossible during those hot summer memories to cool down, to let your temperature drop, you couldn’t escape the heat. But the fall is different. Add more layers, eat a hearty meal, or get that blood pumping; there is a multitude of ways to stay warm during the fall.Something just feels right about the way long-sleeves fit in October. Walking out to the vibrant orange and yellow atmosphere, feeling the cold not at your skin, but stopped short by added layers. It’s almost like your outsmarting the system, like your fighting a small battle against Mother Nature and coming out victorious. Throw on the forgotten cold-weather cap and you are conqueror of this universe. The reason your room seems so cold in the morning is because you have stayed warm under the covers all night. Fall is here and you are ready.Besides adorning feathered clothing, a different inclination of humans can also be attributed to the dropping temperatures, a natural instinct engraved into our genes; the penchant for body heat. Never in the summer is hanging out in cramped conditions a necessarily joyous event. But come the long nights and cold temperatures of the fall, gatherings of people can be found packed into the kitchen, the family room, and all together in an effort to keep the cold away with a collective warmth.It can be strange at first, stepping outside and not immediately drowning in sweat, the new colors are nearly blinding with their brilliance, and the world you once knew has shed its skin to reveal a new kind of beauty. Unarguably one of the best times of year to go out and explore; fall is the season to stay nice and warm.-BDL fall colorscenter_img fall on the mountain photo courtesy of Eric Albitz, ericalbitzphotography.comlast_img read more
