When summer has given way to the first signs of approaching autumn, as it has clearly done by now here in the Netherlands with falling temperatures and a lot of rain, the heart may feel sad. But let us not forget: there is still something to look forward to, the promise of the autumnal colour festival. Will it be like this again this autumn? Then it will be a boost for heart and soul again.
