There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings as now in October.
Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)
These famous words were once written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, one of the most famous authors of the late 1800s whose writing focussed on dark romanticism. Dark romanticism is naturally a style of writing that plays with light and shadows to evoke deep psychological themes. Perhaps it’s little wonder therefore that Hawthorne liked and was inspired by the month of October.
Sometimes we need to experience shadows in our life to appreciate lighter times. Likewise, as is happening now in the month of October, the chill of the mornings and evenings makes us treasure those few hours of warm sunshine in the fading warmth as we progress into Autumn.
