Hail to all who celebrate the advent of Earth’s successive seasons! Here in the Northern Hemisphere we enjoy the Fall’s arrival, bringing its harvest bounties, cool evenings and the glories of the leaves ablaze with vivid color. Those in the Southern Hemisphere greet Spring’s conquering of the Winter as Nature rouses from stasis to surge forth with renewed vigor.
All who enjoy vital existence embrace these seasonal pivot points for we are consonant with the majestic cycling of our precious, fragile island in space. May the new season herald an abundance of joy as we flow in harmony with our beautiful Earth.
Here in the Haunted Hudson Valley, we rejoice as the tenebrous Halloween season rushes through the lengthening nights, soon to sweep us up in its dark mysteries!
