the first snow


Have you ever wondered why autumn is called ‘fall’?


I spent a lot of time today in front of the dye pots, mixing, stirring, waiting.  Waiting gives me time to let my mind wander on such things as this.  

“Autumn is called 'fall' because of the suns continuing falling position in the sky. As the days get shorter the sun continues to 'fall' closer to the horizon until the Winter solstice on December 21st. “

That wasn’t the reason I came up with.
