A brisk coolness to the air,
Another leaf drifts from the tree tops,
Falling effortlessly to the ground.
The greens fade to vibrant orange and fire-like red.
Another chapter closes...but a new one begins...
Does this splendid dance of color warm you,
Does it awaken your senses....
What does autumn bring to you?

Quote For Today...
"“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, I have lived through this horror.
I can take the next thing that comes along.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt"
