Even the sidewalks and gutters are thoroughly filled with leaves now. Crimson berries and bright yellow trees dance against cerulean skies. A red-tailed hawk perches on a high-line pole; seeking food perhaps, or just showing off for my benefit. Heaven knows I enjoy it. Each unfolding of nature's autumnal glory is a delight to me, but one I don't stop to savor often enough. A drive out to the country is called for. Natural scenery to rest my eyes on and take in the season's turning.
