There are things we tend to ignore. Like the signs that fall is coming. We close our eyes pretending not to see the leaves on the ground, we focus on the still blue skies trying to convince ourselves that summer's never going to come to an end. Our umbrellas stay locked up at home, right next to the door, but we never take them on our ways out. We keep our windows open although it is chilly during the late summer nights. We try not to notice that the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder. We postpone fall as long as possible. Even when it is already raining outside, the leaves have fallen down we pretend not to notice. Like autumn is going to go away if we ignore it persistently enough.
Why do we do this? What's so bad about fall? What's wrong with the change of the seasons that we pretend not to see it? Why do we shut ourselves for the upcoming season? Why don't we see the beauty and use it for inspiration instead of suffering from autumn depression? May be fall is too complicated to grasp. It's hard to see the beauty if we close our eyes. It's hard to feel inspired, if we shut our hearts. It's hard to fall in love, if we hold on to tight. It's hard to jump, if we are such cowards. It's hard to feel the rain, if we stay inside. It's hard to live the present, if we still leave in the past. It's hard to see the future, if we are not willing enough....
No matter if you like fall or not.... Here's something I am sure you're all going to like! We are all about to change our wardrobes, go shopping to fill the gaps in our fall outfits, feel inspired by the clothes we forgot we had since we locked them up not to annoy the summer sun. Here's a little glimpse of my autumn thoughts. Here's one of the reasons I want the seasons to change :)
How do you feel about fall? Love it or hate it?
