Fall ? the word paints an image that flickers across the synapses in the tangle of nerves crowded in the gray matter within our skull. It creates a visual image; an image consisting of a kaleidoscope of colors; reds, oranges, fading greens and vivid yellows. It?s an image of a blue sky so vivid that it hurts your eyes, and low scudding clouds so dark that they invoke images of the coming winter.
