Elizabethton, TN

Jon and I recently went to northeast Tennessee to visit family. We wandered around through quiet downtown streets on Thanksgiving night, their lights brightly anticipating the next holiday to come...

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It's a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it's time to reflect on what's come before.
