Every year, to celebrate out wedding anniversary, we try to get away. We’ve been doing a fall trip to the mountains, staying outside of Boone, NC. in a very old cabin.
It is a chance to step away from the ordinary. We hiked along a creek with a series of small waterfalls yesterday. It has been damp and rainy, but the woods are beautiful. The colors of fall are just about gone and there is the feeling that winter is close.
For all the pleasures of the other seasons, autumn has been our time. Being up here brings back memories of all the other times and places, of how young we were and how we thought we were all grown up.
Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity can be the tick of a clock.
