A Quote

Autumn is showing itself all around  here in Western Pennsylvania, and in honor of my favorite season here’s a quote from one of my favorite naturalist authors Marcia Bonta.

“On such a day I feel as if no other place on earth could be as beautiful as our piece of the appalachian mountains. They may be incredibly old and worn down, but they are verdant, proof that old age needn’t be ugly or deprived but expansive and breathtaking. To go out with your flame still burning like the leaves of Autumn is the way to die, but are we reborn as the trees are each spring?”
