Autumn community moments
Autumn is a great time for community moments- when families and towns or even employees find themselves doing the comunal work of the season.
Examples of this are the harvests, pruning and all the outdoors work that means long, strenuous hours but are rewarded by the bringing in of crops and the first measure of the years sucess or failure.
There is the sense of preparing for the winter, putting things away with care, stopping up the cracks, cutting the wood.
And then theres the celebrations! Wine festivals, hunting festivals, mushroom food fairs and my favorite- the truffle fairs! Communities getting together and toasting a years worth of work and reward.
