Fabulous Fridays: October & Fall





Quote(s): Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.
- Albert Camus
Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
- William Cullen Bryant
Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.
- Stanley Horowitz
   October is nature's funeral month.  Nature glories in death more than in life.  
The month of departure is more beautiful than the month of coming - October than May.  Every green thing loves to die in bright colors.
-  Henry Ward Beecher

Song: October- U2
-only has one verse and a lot of piano, perfect!-
[October
And the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear
What do I care
October
And kingdoms rise
And kingdoms fall
But you go on... and on...]


Thought: It's a rainy day here in Austin, Texas. Sometimes it takes time for the heat to go away here, but today it's certainly a Fall-type day. Skies are cloudy, streets are wet, and wind is blowing. Is the weather where you are similar? Well I hope that if it is, you are not feeling blue about it. October is the start of a beautiful season, it's just a matter of admiring the wonderful aspects of it as opposed to being sad for the sun's temporary "departure." I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 
Love, Marcela
