The changes that Fall Brings

Fall is on my mind
Today me, caleb, and j-mass went to fort tryon part on the northern part of manhattan to take some pics of the changing leaves. I was pondering what the meaning of fall was. Its the opposite season to spring, and spring is the season of renewal and birth...soo..does that mean that fall is the season of death and decay? and if so, it makes sense that halloween happens to "fall" in the fall months. In spring i feel rejuvinated, but in the fall i don't necessarily feel decayed. Anyone feel this way? i'd love to hear from you. (right now i feel like a radio show host). I pondered these questions on the long train ride home. When i got home i sat on the couch and watched the remaining college football games, like i do on a normal fall saturday. Maybe fall is actually the "fall" of pretender football teams, who may have done well during the late summer months. Anyway, enough rambling. I just find it amusing that we attribute the "spring" of the flowers to our own lives (spring cleaning), yet ignore attributing fall to our daily lives. of course we do pull out all the winter coats and clutter everything up. we should have a fall "messying". i'm all for it. In the mean-time i'll just think of fall as the season where the fires get goin, postseason baseball is wrapin' up (or the offseason is heating up), and football teams are seperating themselves from the pretenders. oh, and lets all just thank God that we don't have to put up with hockey this time around. CYA!

I just took some good pictures. I wasn't thinking much about death and decay. You know, Spring is going on as I write!! Argentines, Chileans, and Antarcticans have Christmas in the Summer, Easter in the Fall, and Halloween in the Spring. That may seem weird, but it is! Did you know their water also swirls in the opposite direction as it goes down the drain? Where does the word "Autumn" come from? And you know what, winter in Spanish is "Invierno," which is one letter shy of "Infierno," which is Hell. HAHA...this is the Fallen Angel writing. All of you reading this will receive my wrath and fury! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA...
