It is no secret that we love autumn – and all it brings. The natural beauty of vibrant leaves as trees make their turn from the liveliness of summer toward the stillness of winter is glorious – but it’s just the beginning! Of course, there are the autumn holidays to celebrate: Labour Day (farewell to summer); Columbus Day (a day of discovery in the US); Hallowe’en (our ghoulish favourite!); Veteran’s Day (to honour those who served in the US); and Thanksgiving (such a beautiful, thoughtful holiday – and the food is good too!).
But what was that thing about Hallowe‘en??? Well, we’ll leave that to an upcoming post, but for now, we celebrate the annual transition as it begins. Subtle and not-so-subtle changes in the natural world are fascinating to watch. Come explore a bit at Côte de la Mer Galerie and enjoy the beauty. Russell Eponym (our Poet Laureate and Artist-in-Residence) has a beautiful piece that is a pairing of lyrics and painting that’s a must-see, and Ǣon shares a lovely tryptich based on Ode to Autumn by John Keats. Read the lyrics in what Russell has created along with the Keats poetry, and be enchanted! I share a few of my favourite fall views as well. I can feel the chill in the air and smell the cooling earth resting under those fallen leaves that crunch beneath my feet – and gather my sweater around me to keep warm!
Your conveyance to Côte de la Mer Galerie is HERE. And do grab the notecard at the entrance to wander the region for more autumn splendour – and a hint of winter too!
