Autumn Reflections – Day 7


Thanksgiving can be a warm and special time. Canadian Thanksgiving has already passed, but American Thanksgiving is coming up quickly. Its a holiday that I look back on with fondness and good memories. Spending time with family and friends, the delicious food, and all the good conversation that goes along with it. And its important that we’re reminded to be thankful for what we have.

At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.
– Rainer Maria Rilke
