In Autumn

posted on: October 7, 2008


"To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty...Not the sun or the summer alone, but every hour and season yields its tribute of delight; for every hour and change corresponds to and authorizes a different state of mind, from breathless noon to grimmest midnight...Crossing a bare common, in snow puddles, at twilight, under a clouded sky, without having in my thoughts any occurrence of special good fortune, I have enjoyed a perfect exhilaration.

Almost I fear to think how glad I am."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature
