Do you ever notice that?
You can smell the crisp air, listen to the crunching of the deadened leaves and the laughter of children decked out in Halloween costumes.Can you imagine having apple cider, pumpkin seeds, and delectable doughnuts all year 'round? Talk about a delicious season for your pallet!

Most importantly, it's impossible to miss the color change...
I experienced the most surreal visual experience the other day.
Walking down a path lined with enormous sky-scraping maples and oaks, the world all of a sudden became overwhelmingly beautiful.
The bustling noise of the city disappeared, and I was engulfed in the sounds of nature. The wind howled--not an overbearing gust, but enough to rustle the branches of the fully-colored trees.
Slowly, as if I were trapped inside an autumn-like snow-globe, the leaves began to descend. Shades of crimson, burgundy, and golden-apple leaves fell around me like the first snow of the season. I looked up, and beyond the descending leaves, past the very tip-tops of the massive trees, was the pale blue of an afternoon Michigan sky.
It was breathtaking, so I stopped-- I closed my eyes, took a couple deep breaths, and just took in the pure beauty of the land around me.
It reminded me of all the things I have to be thankful for. It would do my life so much good to have a moment of clarity, astonishment, and peace like that on a regular basis.
Have you ever had an experience like this?
