Fall

The word “fall” (for autumn) is one of those American things I can’t do without.

Aberdeen in the fall

I love the soft sound of the word, which in my mind is a very different word from the kind of fall that brings you crashing to the ground.  Fall the season reminds me of the fall of a soft fabric, of letting go and falling into a soft featherbed.

Brilliant blueberry bushes in late afternoon sun, October 3rd 2010.

And then of course there are fall colors.  That’s a much more satisfying expression than “autumn colours” to me.  And here in Aberdeen we are seeing some fall color.  We don’t have the eye-popping kind of fall colors that you get in New England, for example, except that I think our blueberry bushes come pretty close.  In the late afternoon light their colours were singing.

    • Carin, your stitching blog is really interesting. (Readers: Carin is doing a draw for 5 Halloween cross-stitch designs. If interested, go to http://cazwa.blogspot.com/ before 20th October.) I’m intrigued to know about The Amish Circle Quilt book. I’m really interested in the Old Order religions as well. There was a programme on Channel 4 here in Britain about a group of Amish teenagers who came to visit. I was thinking of writing a bit about that at some point.

      Since you’re a pagan, soon it will be time to wish you a Happy Samhain! Hmm – another idea for a post?
