    October Fun

    "But in other hours, Nature satisfies by its loveliness, and without any mixture of corporeal benefit. I see the spectacle of morning from the hill-top over against my house,
    from day-break to sun-rise, with emotions which an angel might share. 
    The long slender bars of cloud float like fishes in the sea of crimson light. From the earth, as a shore, I look out into that silent sea. I seem to partake its rapid transformations: 
     the active enchantment reaches my dust, and I dilate and conspire with the morning wind."
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson
