Das Herbst

Autumn is my favorite time of the year - tis' the season of:

stunning color

brisk temperatures

honeycrisp apples

everything pumpkin

hot chocolate and apple cider

new beginnings (school, that is)


Fall/Autumn is good for my psyche - it is visible and tangible in a way that is unlike the other seasons and I love the effect it has on me each year.

If seasons had soundtracks, then I came across the soundtrack for Autumn this week.  We went to see Bram Stoker's Dracula at BalletMet, and the music for the pas de deux between Dracula and Mina was gorgeous:  Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo P√§rt.

Check it out on Youtube if you feel so inclined.

Happy Autumn.
