I've posted many times before that I love the Fall. Don't know why. I've thought it could be connected to all those years of going back to school, or the colors, or the fun of the holidays that begin once autumn arrives. Perhaps. But over at a website called Grognardia, James Maliszewski reflects on another dimension of fall: The decay. Now the website itself is one dedicated to the hobby of role-playing games. That's probably most famously manifested in the game Dungeons and Dragons, though the website seems to focus on other things as well.

Who knows. Like Mr. Maliszewski in his piece, I'm more or less rambling out loud. But when I was looking for things of fall and found the article, it made me wonder. It especially made me surprised that, when it comes to the sudden desire to reflect on olden times and ancient rhymes, I'm not the only one who gets a dose of inspriation when the frost starts covering the pumpkins.
