Even what has died is beautiful.  —Seyi

It’s autumn, and here in Montréal, even if you decide to pay no heed, you will find it hard not to see a beautiful transformation taking place. Stealthily and quietly, nature is at work as the Earth continues its journey to complete yet another trip around the Sun and though there may not be any fresh garden flowers to pick, there is still great beauty to be found.
