Greetings and salutations!
It has been a long time since we last met. Many wonderful photographs have been made; relationships, and bonds, have been strengthened; and time has tramped on indifferent to the goings on inside her eternal mechanism. Fall is upon us.
Hemingway once wrote:
“You are expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen.” (A Moveable Feast)
I suppose fall is sort of a melancholy season, full of reflection. When losses are felt more deeply and with the days shortened, time seems to slip from our grasp with more ease. But Autumn is also so full of brilliance. Brilliant reds, yellows, oranges; wool sweaters, homemade soup, and firesides; words like cozy, embers, and glow fit into our conversations like a home knit scarf.
Autumn is a season on contrast. This fact isn’t easily missed if you spend in our household. Melissa feels the melancholy in the season, resonating with the words of Hemingway; whereas I see it’s brilliance, and might cite Albus Dumbledore: “happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
We hope you enjoy this little ray of light tonight, while you are curled up under your quilts, with your extra soft flannel pajamas on, listening to the wind howl through sparse tree branches reaching up toward the cold dark night.
