The Meaning of Fall

the colors of fall foliage

I lived in a small village south of The Netherlands for a couple of years. When I say small, I mean it: it had at the time around 4,000 inhabitants. It was a major change since I had lived only in large metropolitan cities. But certainly a positive one, because living there allowed me to get closer to nature and reignited my senses. I started feeling the seasons in a way I had never felt before.

My favorite season by far was Fall. I was always stunned by the colors and beauty of the foliage. In the beginning, it would make me a little sad and introspective, but then I got it.

This preparation for the winter, when my body started asking for warmer clothes, richer food, and coziness, didn't mean I was shutting down, but that every year I would have the opportunity to stop and take better care of myself and the people I loved. But how could I do that when my family and many friends were far away abroad?

That's, for me, the meaning of this season: being close even when it seems impossible. When craving warmth and proximity, let's return to what makes us human, connecting to the ones we love and miss, expressing our feelings and thoughts through messages they can hold and feel, and inspiring them to embrace self-love, letting go, and togetherness.
