one morning at 7:30 a.m. there was a crispness in the air. there was a breeze. the sky was grey and blanketed with clouds. it was finally autumn. we rushed to get our sweatshirts and stepped out into the cool air. we stepped across the dew-covered lawn and sat down. my brother and i just sat there in silence. listening to the many birds in the trees. feeling the chill overtake our bare toes. that morning, it officially was deemed autumn. it was beautiful.
