I looked back to see what I might have written about
last year at this time and, of course, it was the upcoming election and the havoc that was created by it. Interestingly, we’re not in an election year, however, there is still a great deal of unrest in the country. Last month’s eclipse created a special moment when we all could come together to experience something happening universally. It occurred to me that Autumn, soon to be in our midst, might also create a backdrop for a more peaceful time. Below are several quotes regarding autumn that gave me a perspective to think about the upcoming months.
“Use what you have, use what the world gives you. Use the first day of fall: bright flame before winter’s deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire. Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze, our kitchens filled with smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself. The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world’s oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter.” – Shauna Niequist
“Autumn is A Second Spring When Every Leaf Is A Flower” – Albert Camus
While the world spins around us, it’s very apparent through these pages that Brighton and its surrounding areas are growing and providing “our world” with many opportunities to brighten our lives. Don’t miss Lulu’s 9th Annual Chile Fest and all of the other events listed in the magazine. Try out the restaurants listed and enjoy a great Fall meal with our favorite Broncos in the background. Don’t delay….Brighton your day with information from September’s issue of The Brighton Buzz!
With solemn remembrance, we honor those lives that were lost in 9/11 so many years ago.
The Best To You This September,
