F is for Fall!

There’s a scientific way of looking at fall: Night comes faster, temperatures drop, and chlorophyll draws its pumping green production to a standstill. Carotenoids are unveiled on leaves, bringing forth warm reds, yellows and oranges. But there’s something more mysterious about fall. It’s ability to, just by saying the word alone, summon a crispness or the sweet smell of leaves—dying though they may be. Images come of warped little gourds and pumpkins on porch stoops, chili on a stove. Bookstores and steaming mugs of liquid somethings beckon a little more strongly. Music takes a more dissonant note.

Or maybe it’s just another season to you. But for us, fall is a time to turn inward—celebrate the great indoors.
