“Autumn is the second spring, when every leaf is a flower.” —Albert Camus

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.” —Emily Bronte

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” —Stanley Horowitz

“The best is autumn. It is mature, reasonable, and serious. It glows moderately and not frivolously…It cools down, clears up, makes you reasonable.”—Valentin

“Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.” —David Letterman



“BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER” we all need to remember and do what Ellen DeGeneres says. Myself included. We all need to just do it each and every day. Spread it around.

When things go wrong, don’t go with it.

When things don’t go right, go left.

Spread Cheer. Share a smile with someone who doesn’t have one.

Remember United we stand Divided we fall.

Mother Nature gives us enough to worry about along with health issues and just everyday stress. Don’t make it worse.

Keep it together people!
