Kristjaan’s inspiring haiku:
seasons come and go  
the everlasting motion of nature- 
perpetuum mobile

as summer retreats
autumn appears center stage
with her richer hues

Hoosier Quote:
“October is nature’s funeral month. Nature glories in death more than in life. The month of departure is more beautiful than the month of coming-October than May. Every green thing loves to die in bright colors.”
