Sometimes it seems there are now two color shows every October; the one spectacularly painted each year by Mother Nature’s hand and the one manufactured and marketed around pink and pink ribbons. During the rest of the year when you think about October, which show comes to mind first?
For me, it will always be Mother Nature’s.
Where I live, October is a standout month showcasing Mother Nature’s splendor at her finest. How could anyone not love the cooler temps, spectacular displays of color and gentle reminders to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the moment? October is fall’s high performance month. It’s still my favorite month of all.
And then there’s the other October color show… you know, the pink one.
Sometimes I wonder why October was chosen to be breast cancer awareness month in the first place. After all, a different month would blend in better color-wise would it not?
Regardless, both of October’s color shows are coming to an end.
I choose to close out October not focusing on the pink one at all.
What about you?
