looking forward to fall

I really want fall to go ahead and get here. I can sense it approaching, even though the weather hadn't cooled off much until recently. I want the leaves to go ahead and start changing, and I want to sit outside in jeans and a hooded sweatshirt.

Fall also puts me in much more of a reflective state, and I always find myself listening to a lot of indy rock, going for long walks, reading a lot, and basically being extra pensive.

I guess it's also interesting to me that in a few months, fall will be over, and I will be thinking about Christmas time, and hoping for a ski trip into a snowy part of the country. This may not seem like that big a deal, but I guess because of where I am in life right now, a lot could change in the next few months. Maybe I'll look back at this fall and think, "wow....fall 2008, that's where a lot of stuff went down." I think maybe I'm hoping that that's the case.

I guess it's cool to know that God knows fully what's going to go down this fall, whether its circumstantially dramatic for me or not...

And I guess I kind of like not knowing. This way I can hope, guess, and ponder on where my life might go.

I think a lot of stuff is going to go down this fall.

And I think that stuff is going to be mostly leaves.
