THE SPIRIT OF AUTUMN BY HEMMERLE
Each of us bears the imprintFrom a poem "To My Friends" by Primo Levi
Of a friend met along the way;
In each the trace of each.
For good or evil
In wisdom or in folly
Everyone stamped by everyone.
Now that the time crowds in
And the undertakings are finished,
To all of you the humble wish
That autumn will be long and mild.
Autumn air, nuances of color, chilly sunset in warm undertones.
Autumn is a good time to remember our friends, our parents, our grandparents – for those lucky ones who still have them. These are our anchors.
Give them a call. Buy a cake and surprise them with an unexpected visit.
We, people, are not as complicated as we like to think. Life's simple joys shine brightest now: a friendly word, a hug, a moment shared. Let's wrap ourselves in the season's warmth and carry it with us, creating a cozy autumn and snug winter for everyone.
