It's true that although the fall is one of my favourite seasons (and definitely the best time to visit Eastern Canada) it always brings a mixture of moods. The sadness in the mix is related to the end of summer, which this year
seemed was shorter than normal and not nearly as hot as it usually is. I feel that I didn't do half of what I planned or hoped to do. 'Ah well, there's always next summer' but that thought comes with a little sigh of resignation.
The fall also brings a feeling of restlessness as I am nagged by a persistent feeling that I should be leaving to go somewhere. There is also a slight mood of foreboding about what the winter might have in store for us and this hangs heavy as the stormy dark sky behind these bright leaves.
But in spite of all of that, the brilliant autumn light, magnified and intensified by the golden, orange and red colours leaves a feeling of joy that no other season seems to carry.
