Walking In The Rain In Autumn...

"The hush comes with the deepening of Autumn; but it comes gradually. Our ears are attuned to it, day by day. But even now, if one awakens in the deep dark of the small hours, one can hear it, a foretaste of Winter silence. It's a little painful now, and a little lonely because it is so strange."

~Hal Borland

It rained yesterday, and it was too pretty to spend the day indoors so... 

"After the first autumn rains, how inimitable the beauty of days... the fall colors, not yet faded, washed out, in the winter deluge, but dripping, glistening, every crystal drop refracting the hut it trickles over. Running, draining color, brighter before the soil takes back again the positive red and yellow and blue to weave into the misty textures of spring."

Yeah I know... I am obsessed with autumn, but it's almost over, so humor me!
