Thoughtful Thursday

It’s Thursday, and I’m supposed to have any thoughtful post for you all today, but I don’t think I do. So, I’m just going to write and see what happens.

The air of Autumn hangs heavy in the air. The chill of the morning frost kisses my skin before the sun has risen in the sky. Amber and gold sprinkle the horizon – the colors of fall are arriving for their fleeting moments, soon to be overtaken with the barren stillness of winter.
