|The Spice Rack|
By Dorotha Schaefer:
“In autumn,” says Woody, “a sort of melancholia, or deep nostalgia, often grips us. Perhaps it is because autumn is filled with wistful days and long sighs, even gloom, I think, and even pain as we wrestle with what was, what is and what might have been. Autumn arrived at my house just as anticipated and on a sudden wisp of cool, damp breeze was the unmistakable smell of old harvests, musty places and old faces. Summer has finished her work and marched into oblivion.”
All you winter lovers are filled with anticipation and looking forward to cold, snow and sleet. Since that is what is going to happen soon enough, enjoy!
