Autumn Splendor in an Ugly Land

Autumn in Pennsylvania is a most beautiful time of cool foggy mornings and colorful foliage.  The beauty is unsurpassed by any other season however this year is different.  It is not the season, it is not the colors, but it is the people engaged in the messy business of selecting a president.  Never in my 61 years have I seen such a campaign with so much hate, propaganda, and lies on display.  This election season has brought out the worst in so many people who feel the need to share an endless stream of the above on social media.

My hope is that as the leaves fall from the trees and November's somber grays smothers the landscape; with this most divisive election in our review mirror, our nation can experience healing regardless of the candidate selected.

Good Morning, Coy!

Thank You for your beautiful photos and sentiments. The healing power of Nature will always trump hatred. This, too, shall pass.

Many of us fear that the vitriol and hatred have irreparably changed our nation and made it impossible to reach a consensus on anything -- hope we're wrong, fear we're correct.

But, we can always, for a while, escape to the natural world.
