I never got around to writing a review for this after I read it. I'm considering a second reading, because I think it probably deserves more than the three stars I gave it. A few days ago I ran across something I had copied from the book. It's never too late to share gorgeous writing, so I wanted to post it here. I love the way he sums up the gifts each season has to offer:

"It is fall, with trees growing cold and leaves beginning to turn red. Nature is resting after having turned verdant and frolicked in the spring, shimmered with its hues of gold and glitter in the summer. Now there are shades of sweetness, nonchalance, and reconciliation. Nature is like a mature woman who still has some charms but has quieted down, has put aside her vanity, her makeup, and her seductiveness."
