Something New
As a rule , in New York, you can count on the seasons that we experience; winter ,
summer ,autumn, and spring. My favorite season is autumn, so here we are. I love that though the colors hint of something living that will soon be gone until another season, there is another promise hidden in this transition: everything will be made new! This has been a very difficult year for all of us.

Sad as it may seem- though autumn ushers in the end of many things from the previous year, it also comes with the promise that all things will be made new in the next year! A new beginning is what is next! Be thankful! Embrace it!
