The beautiful autumn smell.
The crisp air.
The crunch of the leaves beneath your feet.
Yes, this is definitely my favorite season.
"Beauty is no end in itself, but if it makes our lives less miserable so that we might be more kind—well, then, let's have beauty, painted on our porcelain, hanging on our walls, ringing through our stories. We are a sorry tribe of beasts. We need all the help we can get."
