When I was little, fall was my least favorite season. I know, I know. How can that even be, right? But I used to tell my mom that fall meant that everything was “browning down.” And, in my mind, brown translated to drab, dull, and, more times than not, just downright dead.
And to be fair, sometimes autumn in the south can be tough. There are those years when the month of September and most of October is so hot, we wonder if summer even really left us at all. We sweat through our football games, think twice about putting our pumpkins out, and worry about whether or not things really will dry up and turn brown before we get to catch any glimpse of fall at all.
But fret or not, our southern autumn always shows up every year, in its own time and in its own way. And every year, upon her arrival, I learn all over again that there is more than just brown on the autumnal palette.
And the miracle is that even on those hot, dry days of September and October, before fall decides to make her elusive presence fully known, she is already there. In an unexpected cool morning. In the yellow of goldenrod. In our longing to linger together in the golden evenings, on the porch, at a table like this one, surrounded by sweet laughter and even better friends.
