"Squeeze your eyes closed, as tight as you can, and think of all your favorite autumns, crisp and perfect, all bound together like a stack of cards. That is what it is like, the awful, wonderful, brightness of Fairy colors. Try to smell the hard, pale wood sending up sharp, green smoke into the afternoon. To feel the mellow, golden sun on your skin, more gentle and cozier and more golden than even the light of your favorite reading nook at the close of the day."

Sweet, sweet autumn! I woke up this morning to the most beautiful sunshine, the clearest air, and the most lovely twinkle of leaves dancing here and there! It was a day of unbelieveable happiness. It really was. It was a day of decisions and better yet, decision made in confidence and peace! Details aren't really necessary, just know I am okay. I am happy. And autumn is really a season of healing.
I am happy! Alan is happy!
And there is so much more to come of this magical season!
