It is a cool, crisp autumnal day. The leaves are falling down around you, and the birds are chirping of their upcoming travels southward during the cooler temperatures. This is the type of evening stroll you look forward to most this time of year. You wave to another walker and breathe in deeply. The earth has a sense of quiet as it transitions seasons and allows time for tranquility and thankfulness in the small things. As you are thinking, the wind suddenly picks up and you adjust your cowl. Grateful for the warmth provided by the soft, comforting, knitted fabric, and you smile.
