Aurora understands why I need to be outside in the Fall. From June till now, I wait for Autumn. When the chill winds come out of the west with misty rain, I start to smile. When the rain clears, and the trees peak with color... I get happy. Last year I missed the Fall. I closed my eyes September 8th, and woke up over a month later. By the time I could hold my head up enough to see out the window, snow had fallen. When we drove home from the hospital at the tail end of the first week of November, the trees were bare. I have never felt more cheated. I waited all Summer for that Fall. I came back from a gray world... into this gray world. I was pretty disappointed. This year did not disappoint.
