It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

The Magic of Now
"Always say “yes” to the present moment.
What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is?
what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now?
Surrender to what is.
Say “yes” to life —
and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you." ~Eckhart Tolle~
