Thats a great collage. It's now my desktop image on my laptop. I'm really missing Vermont Fall right now. My friend Aaron (Of the Aaron and Laura fame) wrote a great bit about his first experience with fall on his Live Journal;

"autumn arrived under a cover of mist yesterday morning. there was a chill in the air when i stepped out the door, and a haze so thick i couldn't see to the end of the block. the mountains were gorgeous, though. faint silhouettes in the distance, jagged lines in soft focus. everything washed in the pale pink-grey of morning light.

this morning i woke to darkness. stillness. watched the sun rise as i ate breakfast. the tree line in our backyard is starting to turn. all reds and yellows, oranges and browns.

i layered as i dressed. coat over hoodie over button down shirt. scraped the frost from my windshield and waited for the car to warm. hands on the steering wheel, i wondered where i left my gloves back in april when the snow finally melted."

I thought that was wonderful.
I hope you are well :)
