Happy First Day Of Fall!

Although it officially doesn't start until 11:09PM, the first day of fall has arrived in all it's glory! I have been waiting for this day for awhile now. Fall is undoubtedly my favorite time of year with its wonderful sights, smells, tastes, sounds and touch. I don't think I use my senses as much during any other season . The leaves have really started to change here especially in the last week or so. I have yet to see any place as beautiful  as the Catskill Mountains in fall! My goal is to post lots of autumn ideas now that fall is officially here so check back often.

I came across this old song entitled September Song written by Maxwell Anderson and Kurt Weill. It was written in the 1930's and used in several movies over the years. Here are a portion of the words.

Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September

When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few

September, November
Oh these few precious days I'll spend with you

These precious days I'll spend here with you

The last two lines especially sum up perfectly my thoughts on fall.

It really is a beautiful song and there are many versions sung by many artists but I really liked this old one from 1955 sung by Jimmy Durante. You can listen to it by clicking this link

Happy First Day Of Fall everyone! Go out and enjoy!
