Two weeks ago I looked out my window at the changing leaves and sighed at how lovely the colors looked. As I passed through the kitchen throughout the day it seemed like the leaves were changing colors by the hour. Though the colors are glorious it made me feel sad instead of happy. The season is going by too fast. The leaves on the red trees have mostly fallen to the ground now. Raking party tomorrow. I am grateful for the beauty of the season but I'm feeling wistful this week and wish that the colors would stay bright -- and hang onto the trees -- for just a little longer.
