oh october!


October is here, and with it the feeling that autumn has officially arrived! Although the weather in Korea is not as cool and crisp as what you might find in Wisconsin at this time of the year, it’s beautiful outside — bright and breezy during the day and a little bit brisk at night, with a slow but persistent cold front that’s quietly pushing us toward the winter season.

Because Korea and Wisconsin are on about the same lateral plane, they both share the fortune of having four distinct seasons, Korea’s summer being hotter and stickier and Wisconsin’s winter being colder and snowier. But never mind summer and winter. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, and I’m excited to be embarking on this Autumn 2009.

Even though spring is traditionally regarded as the season of renewal and fresh beginnings, I’ve always felt the most alive during the autumn months. The changing colors, the falling leaves, the blowing winds — all of it invokes in me such a strong sensation of promise and potential, the thrill of taking that next step around the bend, and the hope that what awaits you just might change your life. Happy Autumn, everyone!
