31 Days of of Seeking Joy in the EveryDay: Pleasure in the Walk

There's just nothing like a walk on an autumn afternoon.  Everything is impossibly golden and crisp.  The best part, though, was a surprise encounter with an armadillo :o)

  Her pleasure in the walk must arise 
from the exercise and the day, 
from the view of the last smiles of the year 
upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, 
and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand 
poetical descriptions extant of autumn
--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence 
on the mind of taste and tenderness--
that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read
some attempt at description, 
or some lines of feeling.”
 Jane Austen, Persuasion
