The dying of the light

Among other things, NASA observes the earth and grabbed this shot of the eastern US a few days ago showing the Autumn colors bursting forth as the last, sputtering gasps of summer peter out and the long cold nights begin. It's a beautiful time of year in this region of the world when trees burst into flames to rage against the dying of the light.

Mid October is when the reality of the coming winter sets in - the first frost, collecting firewood, foggy morning mist rising off the pond, geese squawking on an afternoon flyover, Hillary Clinton is set to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi - There's a lonely, wistful beauty to all of it and a man must enjoy the spectacle before daylight saving time ends and the sunlight fades an hour earlier.
