“Being deathless, Eden could never have an autumn. Somehow, a great beauty of the world was missing from Eden, and will, maybe, hopefully, someday be missing again. Autumn will only be our memory of it, as for eternity we remember the brief flicker of a world where there was tragedy, and it was beautiful.“
— Lyman Stone (best little brother ever, and most poetic future economist there is)Some images from fall, both in DC and from this past weekend in New York. Pretty sure that Sandy is going to blow all those beautiful leaves into the gutters this week, and then we will have to wait a whole year until we get another one.
This was my biggest motivation to talk a long walk through Central Park yesterday!
It was sooooo beautiful! Wish you had been out a walking Saturday so I might have bumped in to you! : ) Next time!
If there’s no Autumn and Winter in paradise then I’m not going. Beautiful post!
I wish that the leaves changed colors here in southern CA
I think it is one of the biggest reasons I would be sad to leave this part of the country. When I lived in MI the leaves were even better… but winter was tooooo long!
