Happy Fall!

Isn't fall great? We went camping last weekend, and the trees were starting to turn the beautiful fall colors. Some folks from back in the Midwest were thinking that I wouldn't get to see any fall colors when we moved to New Mexico. Ah, but this is the beauty of living in the high desert - we actually get all 4 seasons. The seasons just aren't as extreme as they might be in the Midwest (harsh winters) or southern New Mexico and Arizona (blistering hot summers).

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It sort of reminds me of beginnings - sounds odd, doesn't it? Still, I think of going back to school when I was a kid, and how excited I was about that. I used to love having new kids in my class, new teachers, even new books! I wasn't a particularly nerdy kid (at least I wasn't in my memory!), but I did enjoy school. That's why fall means beginnings of a sort to me.

Fall also gets me feeling energized. That's quite an accomplishment today, since I'm suffering from a slight cold, but I am energized about getting out into my studio and doing some work on some collage items. I've been working on getting a photo book put together from our vacation in September, but today, I think I'll focus on collage. I finished the vacation photo book yesterday, and altho I have another one waiting (based on our recent trips to the VLA and the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta), I think I'll take a break from photo work today.

Enjoy your day - go out and enjoy the fall, whatever it's like in your neck of the woods! Nadine
