While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall.  It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.

But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.

I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.

Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph “Skin and Bones” by Thechildrensang really keyed into my memories.

I have lived where there was no fall and I missed it. The changing of the seasons, the thoughts of warm sweaters and crisp air. To walk in the woods and listen to the rustling of the dried leaves in the wind. The colors so vivid on the maple leaves. I find the change reminds me of time passing and to remember to breath the air and enjoy life. We lost a maple tree to age and it made me so sad that I welded one of steel and copper to replace it. I found myself welding trees and birds and lights with leaves. It makes me happy to see them and not have to rake them.
