There is a crispness in the air and the weather is changing.
At 5:19 p.m. on Tuesday, when the sun passes halfway between its summer high point and winter low, autumn will have officially arrived. It's the end of the summer and the beginning of a new season.
Call it autumn, harvest or fall - there are certain qualities that are unique to this time of the year.
Change of Temperature
There is an invigorating rush from the soothing cool air. Particularly in the morning - It's natures' wake-up call.
Change of Wardrobe
Shorts, tee shirts and flip flops have ruled the summer. They now must make way for woolens and tweeds, jackets and gloves, and, in general - high fashion.
With another new season comes a new Super Bowl hope. And, the all-important question - who will be performing in the half-time show?
They are just beginning their metamorphosis that will continue over the next few weeks as they transform into a symphony of color. It's a spectacular show with no charge for admission.
A Change of Attitude
Whatever joys, successes and trials the summer has bestowed on you, fall has arrived and delivers with it the freshness of a new season.
