Fall used to make me feel melancholy because it was the end of summer and meant that cold, dark, snowy winter was just around the corner. Working on the autumn issue of PinkPlayMags over the last six years has revitalized the season for me. Now I find it more of a time of deep reflection, a time to give thanks, to look back on my year and cherish the great memories I’ve made.

All too soon the hectic rush of the The festive holiday season with travel and relatives will be upon us, so autumn more than any other time, affords me the luxury of kicking back in an Adirondack chair, switching from an ice cold bevy to a robust glass of red, and basking in another year that has just whirled by. Canada’s stunning fall foliage is renowned the world over, drawing tourists far and wide to enjoy our harvest season. I plan on soaking in the glory of the weather and multi-coloured leaves at more than a few feasts with family and friends.

So however you plan on spending the autumn, I wish you the blessing of good food, soothing drinks and comforting company.

Jeff Harrison is going into his 7th year as editor-in-chief of PinkPlayMags and is astounded at how quickly the time has flown by! Ink runs through his veins and if he's not writing, or editing, then he's voraciously reading...or nerding out over a good comic book, or video game.
