"A New Step"

Where did the summer go?  It seemed like only yesterday that the school vacation began.  Does modern time really go faster or does it just feel that way because I am getting older.  Maybe it is a combination of both.

Fall is a mysterious season that “creeps” in. One day you notice that the sun seems a little brighter and the shade of the old oak is darker and more distinct and you somehow have a feeling that a fragment of fall is present.  The air, especially at late evening and early morning, has a different smell and a cooler feeling.  Fall is so beautiful that I feel sad at its approach.  This season is for observation and also for learning. It is kind of like the great poet, Edgar Allen Poe said, “The essence of beauty is sadness.”
