Jon Crispin's Notebook

Happy New Year…

Posted in autumn, Nature, Seasons by joncrispin on 01/09/2015

…Well sort of.  I grew up in an academic family; my father taught at Allegheny College, and when I was in the 7th grade my mother began teaching at Meadville High School.  So for me, the Autumn is my favorite time of the year and a return to a routine in which I am most comfortable.  I have always viewed the 1st of September as my New Year’s Day.  (The difference being that I am rarely hung over.  I’ll leave that for the 1st of January.)

I was driving back from Boston on Sunday and saw these trees just off Route 202 in Pelham.  I went back last night to take this photograph.  For you lovers of Summer, I know this isn’t such welcome news, but for me it was nice to see some early color.  “For every season”, etc, etc.

I have always liked this XTC song.  Pretty much sums it up.
