Nat King Cole "Autumn Leaves"

Delicious autumn! 

My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were

a bird I would fly about the earth

seeking the successive autumns. 

~George Eliot

Fall officially began with the equinox last night  at 11:09 P.M. (Eastern Time). The autumnal equinox is defined as the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south.

The celestial equator is the circle in the celestial sphere halfway between the celestial poles. It can be thought of as the plane of Earth’s equator projected out onto the sphere. The word equinox means “equal night,” when night and day are of the same duration.
 Read about “The Reason for the Seasons.”



The foliage has been losing its freshness through the

month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows

itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty

who has seen one season too many. 

~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Autumn is a second spring when

every leaf is a flower.

~Albert Camus

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering

together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing,

of scattering abroad. 

~Edwin Way Teale

It was one of those perfect English autumnal

days which occur more frequently

in memory than in life. 

~P.D. James
