North Carolina has been in and out of fall weather, but there is no question that it’s slowly getting colder and colder. Some parts of Greensboro have lost all their leaves, but campus is still colorful. I always feel like I miss fall, that I blink and the leaves have fallen and the pumpkins done away with. It’s one of the many reasons I don’t like Christmas to start till after thanksgiving. Fall is so beautiful, the weather is more mild than winter being crisp not cold, everything’s colorful, fresh apples are everywhere. Why would we want to fast forward through that?
Then again I’ve been fighting human natures want to fast forward through everything. We spend our weeks waiting for the weekends and our weekends waiting for the holidays. I’m still working on it, but how important is it to live in what’s happening and fully enjoy it.
