“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

—Albert Camus

In New York we’ve almost passed the time of brilliantly shining leaves, yet when I found this quote yesterday it struck me as perfect for this moment. As nature hunkers down to rejuvenate itself during the winter, it’s tempting to let your spirit go into hibernation, as well. But we are capable of creating a new spring for ourselves—in our lives and our souls—whenever we choose to try. I choose now.
