Fall... A Season of Change

By Christy L. Riley

Fall is clearly a season of change; because it is the time of year when the leaves change colors and fall to the ground for us all to jump and crunch beneath our feet. To fully define this season of change and remembrance, here are what others have to say: what do you like most about fall; tell your favorite childhood memory; and what does “Fall” mean to you.

“The colors of the leaves on the trees, because it looks awesome. Probably either jumping in the leaf piles or going trick-or-treating. It means the weather is getting colder and that Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner.” Josh.

“I love the fall, the crisp cool air and beautiful leaves.  As we have moved around I realized that the fall is not as beautiful everywhere.  I especially remember living in Sioux Falls and finding the most beautiful fall tree each year.” Linda.

“[I] love the fall colors... and the cooler weather. My favorite memories are definitely making huge piles of leaves in front of our old house in Dallas and jumping in them. Then waiting till after dark to play flashlight tag in the colder weather and hiding in the piles of leaves.” Gracie.

“There are several things I love about fall.  Leaves turn beautiful colors, the temps are much better than summer, being in the mid 60’s and 70’s.  It is just an all around great time to get out and enjoy the weather with family and friends without burning up or freezing to death. Being at my grandparents house with my best friends, just hanging out and not having a care in the world. Well, for one, means Football is here.  But also means that many families will spend a lot more time together and just enjoy life.  Some look at fall as things dying. I look at fall as things going to rest so that they may be even more beautiful and inspiring than before.” Daniel.

“I enjoy the cool weather while still being warm enough not to wear a coat. Nature is beautiful and it is easier to appreciate it in warm weather.  Playing in the leaves with my family and just chillin’ in a the newly cooled weather. It’s what happens when you trip on something and slam face first into the ground. Or the time of the year the weather becomes less hot and sticky.” Zac.

“I enjoy seeing the beauty of all the magnificent colors, the smell of bonfires and wood burning, hearing the crunching noise of leaves under my feet, the taste of all the dishes Autumn has to offer (Thanksgiving!), and the feeling of the cooler (not cold) air that brings me to get out warmer clothes (since by this time I am tired of my summer wardrobe).  I think Fall is my favorite season because it stimulates and engages all the senses that make life so enjoyable. Plus it brings family and friends together with the anticipated holidays.” Michelle.

It matters not how you enjoy this season of change, nor whom you choose to spend it with. What matters is that you enjoy this brief lapse of time known as Fall, or commonly called Autumn. Make the most of Fall and make some new memories to share with future generations. Go out and take pictures of the beautiful leaves and hang out with friends and family as you enjoy all there is to love about Fall: be it the cooling weather, remembering the past years, looking forward to the holidays yet to come, fall sports like football, all the food, or just simply enjoying the environment of what makes Fall truly a season of change.
