The day dawns bright blue with silver edges. The cottonwood trees scatter their yellow leaves all over the ground like a leafy road leading to the Emerald City. The air smells of apples and sunshine. There’s nothing for it, today MUST be seized in our clutches and captured in heart, mind and film. We hit the roads of Taos to explore the beauty of Autumn, tourists in our own town. And my heart bursts wide open. Not from sadness. Not from the temporariness of it all. But from beauty. So much beauty I explode into a thousand pieces of happy.
