I prefer spring and summer over fall and winter, but I can’t hold back time. The top and bottom photos do make this season look good, though.
Living on the West Coast as long as I did, I grew to appreciate seasons (because they only have the one, if you don’t count fire, mudslides, and earthquakes). It’s good to have seasons to realize time is passing, you ought to be evolving.
Back to this autumnal season, this photo caught my eye, golden girl, golden retrievers, gold background and lighting. It made me think of Robert Frost’s “Nothing Gold Can Stay.”
Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay.
In the top photo, it looks like you could just walk slowly down that dirt road, meander through the season. The photo at left features a paved road, like you could drive through that season’s twists and turns, making the leaves scatter and scurry as you speed by. Which ever of the two divergent roads you take (see what I did there in reference to Frost?), enjoy this new season, please.
