My Take: By Reann Fournier

Fall is my favourite time of year. We don’t get it for long, but I soak up every minute of it.
Fall is this strange mix of beginnings and ends. The start of a new school year and the tail end of our calendar year, the beginning of seasonal holidays and celebrations, but the end of the life cycle for many things on this earth. It becomes a time where families gather more than ever and children start bringing in crisp leaves and runny noses instead of grass stains from outside. We get the last warm days before the November chill sets in, and we look to each other for warmth. We wait to turn the heat on in our homes, but the stove, cooking family meals, keeps it warm enough. There’s just something about the crisp air and warm colours that truly is soothing.
