It Truly is Still Fall Time
Ignore the evergreen trees with lights that have begun to appear as decorations in parking lots. It's Fall for goodness sake.
Most retailers are still showing Fall fruit, pumpkins, colored leaves, everything in orange, golden tones, brown...Fall colors.
A few apricot and golden leaves are clinging like crazy to the aspen trees in the yard. They don't want to give up. You don't need to either. When passing by those decorated evergreens put yourself into a zen state of Fall.
The word zen, by the way, is from the Japanese pronunciation of the Chinese word Chan, which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyana, which can be approximately translated as meditation or meditative state.
Focus on the colors, the feel, the sights of Fall.
It truly is Fall.
