Autumnal Thoughts

That quintessential, cool nip is today in the Autumn air of afternoon.
The sun is out, casting a warmth that penetrates my body even through the brisk winds. 
The weather is, by every definition, beautiful. 
A crisp breeze is in the air and leaves have begun their journey into various shades of amber and crimson in preparation for their release.
It is Fall. 
 It is this season that I most enjoy the outdoors, taking in the gift of Gods creation, the most beautiful of all art forms.  

We may perceive them as simple things, but they are not.  They are not.
 Myself, I don't dislike times of solitude.
I cherish time spent with myself.
 I like being outside listening to the sounds of Autumn;
 the sudden upheaval of leaves accompanied by a subtle breeze, 
 trees whose limbs dance to the music of the wind, 
and the commonly seen squirrel scampering amongst the trees then burrowing into the earth adding to his food cache.
Today I enjoyed my time alone with my thoughts.
