There is an incredibly beautiful sunset out my window. Today there was a clear blue sky, and the air was deliciously crisp. The cold that makes you button up and wrap a scarf close to your neck, without the bitterness yet that winter will bring. A peek up the hill on my morning walk to campus and I can see leaves slowly changing. Farmer's Markets are buzzing, and there's the anticipation of everything lovely about autumn.
There's something inherently melancholy about the whole thing. The vibrant colors. Painfully so. The sun reflecting off an airplane in the fading blue sky. The stillness between light and dark. The silence of street lights warming up a street.
Perhaps it's the quiet ache brought on by nostalgia. Reminders of memories and moments lived in past seasons. Braided together with the present.
Do you ever feel like this during autumn?
Although I'm not quite sure this video would cheer you up, it might captivate you like it did me. Nice song, and a pretty powerful video.
