Getting Our Arms Around It All

Getting Our Arms Around It All

The coming of autumn signals a time of reflection for lots of folks. Maybe it’s because this is when we started back to school as kids, but for some reason fall can seem more like a beginning in certain ways than spring.

One friend told us, just this week, “It’s not really nostalgia, it’s not all looking back. But in the fall, I feel like I can get my arms around my whole life, past, present, and future.” For savoring this feeling, we can think of no better setting than here at the Harbour Town Lighthouse, standing watch over the dream that became America’s favorite vacation island.
