Reflections of thanksgiving

Reflections of Thanksgiving, 5 x 7 #watercolor card
Shorter days and bare branches of this season can be gloomy as the year nears its end and the season of death approaches.
But, not always, especially at this time of thanksgiving. Nature still provides glorious times to enjoy, especially in the more raw, intense light, giver of life.
'Tis a time for reflections, for remembering, for rejoicing, because brilliance and color are more intense against the contrast of perceived gloom.
