As I drive to school in the early morning, the earth is tucked beneath a fuzzy pinkish blanket. Above the pink, the sky is a dusty blue in the transition from night to day. The night’s full moon lingers, round and heavy in morning sky. As the sun rises, the moon fades. The trees, still green, but splashed with red, orange, and yellow, shine in the brightening light of day. As I enter the city the sun reflects blindingly off the many-windowed tall buildings. I arrive at school and as I climb out of the car, gather my bags, and walk to the door, the cool air feels fresh and crisp. The sky above is a clear and brilliant blue, and the sun rules the day. Oh, how I love autumn days!
