We all have a place we like to go when things get unbearable… or maybe we go there when things get great. Maybe we go there for no reason other than we just want to be there.
If I could live in any season for the rest of my days, it would be autumn. The crisp, cool air coupled with bright, crunchy leaves hanging off of tired trees as the Earth prepares for a winter slumber reminds me of a true fantasy world.
Even the air smells better in autumn… could it be pumpkin patches and corn fields? Bright, blooming mums? Or maybe freshly baked apple pies with a touch of cinnamon perched on windowsills to cool in the crisp, autumn air? Or maybe it is just the air itself as it waves through forests, fields, and meadows lassoing the earthly scents and taking them on a journey to make us smile.
I take a week vacation at the end of every October to drive the back roads of Pennsylvania because nothing is more humbling than to see the natural, morphing beauty of my home state.
What is your favorite season? Do you like road trips?
