Season of balance, change

September 24, 2011
By Sarah Hatfield , The Post-Journal

This is a season of balance, of harvest, of change. It is a time to celebrate as we stack our pantries and larders with home-grown food and apple pies. Ok, so most of us don't actually put up our own food anymore. And most of us probably don't pay attention to the length of the days until it is dark a whole lot more than it is light. Many things happen during this season we call autumn, or fall. Apples ripen, leaves curl and color, the birds molt their summer feathers, and the goldenrod tints the world yellow. We don sweaters and jeans, pick up rakes and stack firewood. Even in a time of balance, when days and nights are almost equal in length, it is a time of change.
