Hello Autumn…

Toronto - autumn leafUnlike in past years, I’ve found autumn isn’t a shock to most of us in Toronto – with a lackluster summer, we’re already conditioned for the cooler temperatures.

But despite my malaise about the weather, my love for autumn is always because of the trees – seeing the leaves change from brilliant green to shades of yellow, orange and red is what makes this season palatable for this heat-loving, summer devoted girl.

On the beginnings of autumn, these words from author Stephen King are the embodiment of this time of year in Canada:

“…But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed.

It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
