"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence
Autumn has finally arrived to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Today we had our first all-out, honest-to-goodness Washington rain since Independence Day. The leaves have been changing for about a month now, slowly turning from verdant greens to fiery shades of crimson and gold. And the morning air has been crisp, nipping at the nose and lungs with each deep breath. But it just didn’t feel quite like autumn until the rain came today.
Autumn makes me happy, it makes me want to cozy up with a hot drink, it makes me want to lose myself in a book, it makes me more pensive. More reflective.
Here’s a photo from last autumn during a weekend trip to central Washington. Fall leaves reflecting off the waters of the Columbia River.
What’s your favorite part of autumn?
