This is my first "official" fall in New England. Having previously spent some days and weeks in the area in the past, I never experienced the full coming of the season on a day to day basis. The chill in the air that smells so clean. The army of birds flying over the lake near my house. Leaves changing their colors overnight like moving Technicolor pictures. And other experiences new to me too-caramel apples, pumpkin flavored coffees, and the quickness of the dark in Daylight Savings Time. Everything is slower and richer and more savory.
