The chill is here and I am missing the summer... but Autumn is my favorite season. Such beautiful flame and frost blending summer and winter together. The sweet smell of falling leaves and pumpkin spice. It brings forth a tight longing in my chest, migratory restlessness or Zugunruhe as the Germans call it. I wish fruitlessly for flight, through the trees in their golden glory. The quaking aspens, true gold leaf adorning the shaking branches. Crunching over fallen leaves, sliding on pine needles. Oh the bitter sweet feeling of autumn. But I couldn't and wouldn't change it.
