The Mighty Fall

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ― George Eliot

Undoubtedly fall is the most preeminent of the four seasons. Change is evident everywhere - in the air, the leaves, in the clothes we wear, even in our entertainment - and if only for a season we feel like everything is right in the world. Here are just a few reasons why this is true.

It is a fact that the fall brings forth the best classes. This fall I have the privilege of exploring the world through writing with the chief explorer disguised as my professor. And I should note that my birthday falls smack in the middle of the season, but one of the best things falling in the fall are the leaves. Colorful, crisp, and radiant, cascading in shades of red, yellow, purple, and brown. Fall leaves inspire effortless style and fashion forward ensembles.
Another great example is that the weather is just right and the fashion is fitting. It's the perfect time to add an extra layer without adding too much weight. If fashion is not your thing you can always stay in style. The temperatures are just as suitable for a snuggle buddy. Talk about upward cuddling through the night! Fall is diverse and makes provision for everyone.

The ultimate example, is that all the best TV and internet series are saved to be premiered in the fall. With the exception of Breaking Bad (which ended in the fall) all the best TV and internet series have just resumed. In the past two weeks alone I've witnessed some of the most tantalizing episodes. Homeland, got off to a slow churning but solid third season. Masters of Sex, the new Showtime series based on Thomas Maier's biography Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Couple Who Taught America How to Love is a proactive and smart throwback. Other great fall shows are Revenge, also in its third season and the brand new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

These are only a few reasons to fall in love with fall. Fall is nature's way of hitting the reboot switch. As leaves change and fall, so too should we shrug off the facade of the coming winter's chill and forget the heartbreaks of summer. Fall is renewal and can add meaning to the ordinary.
