The Autumn Equinox officially begins on Sunday, September 22.

In a week that has brought forth much despair: the anniversary of 9-11; the tracking and identification of chemical weapons used by Syria; the crowning of a new Miss America who is Indian-American and immediately–and incorrectly–called a Muslim, an Arab, a terrorist and un-American; and the fatal shooting at the U.S. Naval shipyard, there can be no better time for a reminder of the beauty in simple things.
