On Beauty, October-Style

as seen on an October walk 2012
"In every man's heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the 
vibration of beauty."--from "A Slice of Sunlight" by Christopher Morley, 1928

How's the autumn color in your neck of the woods?

Hope you're getting some great snapshots :-)


  1. Gorgeous tree! And I love that quote. We missed our chance to go see the height of the aspen in the mountains here...the weekends just got away from us when school started. Maybe next year :)

  2. Beautiful picture of that tree. Ours are still green but beginning to turn. They won't look like this until November.

  3. Oh, Jess, I bet the aspens would be beautiful :-) I've been in Colorado twice but never in the fall, so I never had a chance to see their colors. Maybe someday!

    And thanks, Catherine. I hope you have a lovely display of color when the season comes around for you :-) (Texas, right?)

  4. Oh it's beautiful! I didn't realize how much I missed the trees and change in color until I have seen it again!

  5. Thanks, Terri :-) The tree is up the road from my house, along my walking route. Glad you're back where you can see the fall beauty, too!

  6. Our trees are changing - some beautiful in the woods along the roads, some that have lost their leaves already. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. It reminds me of a quote from a Robert Frost poem. We loved it so much we had it read at my mother-in-law's funeral some years back. I love the parallel to letting go of seasons, of people...

    Ah, when to the heart of man
    Was it ever less than a treason
    To go with the drift of things,
    To yield with a grace to reason,
    And bow and accept the end
    Of a love or a season?

  7. "To yield with a grace to reason"--beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing, Peggy. Love it...
