It is simply the best kind of sunshine. Cutting through the crisp morning air to wrap its arms around you in a warm embrace. Casting perfectly long shadows to bring drama and playfulness to the landscape. It even seems brighter and cleaner than its summer counterpart.
“Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy, sunshine in my eyes can make me cry”
Every time I stand with the autumn sunshine at my back I hear the late John Denver’s iconic words ring in my head. Something about the simplicity of that tune matches his subject perfectly. If you’ve never heard it, I highly recommend a listen. If not a bit old fashioned and folkish, it still captures a moment in nature in a timeless way. This song, along with autumn sunshine, makes my heart happy.
