It’s all about Autumn Fall. Fall is the other name of the autumn, one of the four seasons on the earth that comes after summer and that indicates winter. Unlike all the other three seasons, Fall alludes to some deeper implications as it brings big changes in nature. The temperature becomes colder, days shorter, trees turns into yellow, leaves fall and everything in nature slowly starts to fall asleep. It implies some inevitable rules of human life like change and the need to begin anew.
The only constant is change
Once the Greek philosopher Heraclitus said this to describe that change is the only thing we can be sure of. The autumn season reminds us of the change that rolls our life forward and the impermanence everything in life. So it is important to embrace the present.

Yellow is Mellow
Yellow is the colour of the autumn. It catches our attention easily and has a luminous impact. It’s the colour of sunshine, warmth and optimism. Though autumn hints the end, it brims with life also. It has all the grace of the joy we have experienced till now.
“Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.” – Elizabeth Lawrence

The beauty of letting go
When it is fall, trees change their selves, leaves fall down and nature changes from its vibrant mode into a slower pace. Autumn depicts the beauty of letting go. It’s not the end of everything. But it illustrates the cyclic nature of life. We need to shed the full-grown egos inside ourselves and refresh our minds. We need to let some relations go and begin anew.
