Falling into Winter
As fall sets in, we welcome blustery winds, low ochre suns, and that timeless sweet-sour smell of decomposing leaves. Many of us invite traditions of warm spices and beverages, cozy sweaters, and trips to farms and orchards to select pumpkins and apples—some of our last big harvests of the season. Yet in many ways, fall is a time of saying goodbye—to our summer gardens, to the dog days of swimming, and to many of our migration and hibernation-destined animal friends
