The retired falling leaves leave their silent- tree- partners to boogie in the whirly wind. They collect all their last energy to dance frantically into many directions. The patient naked trees silently watch their dearest spouses exultingly perform the Waltz and metamorphose into vibrant red, light yellow, purple, saffron, brown, and or mustard before they rest in peace on the dry ground. In the early dawn, the tiny sparkling diamond dews decorate Mother Nature’s foliaged coat to signal the world the autumn is in the air.
Shopping centers and malls reorganize their stores with shinning garnish and illuminating ornamentation to catch shoppers’ eyes within the Holidays Season. Colorful produces, glamorous merchandises, and fashion cloths are displayed on the counters, and behind the transparent glasses to seduce consumers. Parking lots happily welcome more cars to the shopping plaza. From the parking lots, pedestrians hear the delightful sounds and charming melodies from the stereo about the May Flower Ship, the Native American tribes, and the American ancestors who fought against hardships at their first steps to the New World.
Every morning on the way to work, I observe dynamical people start their new days in the busy streets with cars and cars. Some women wear makeup while they drive; other men with the coffee mugs try to drink or eat their breakfast when the cars stop at the traffic lights or move slowly. They drop their children at schools in a hurry and leave immediately after trading instant kisses with their children. All at once, from the bottom of my heart, uttering words explore, “Good morning November! Good morning students! Thank you for giving me a chance to share my knowledge with you and to guide you to become good citizens. Thank the Alum Rock’s leaders and the Child Development Company’s employers who give me a job in this great recession! Thank you for your trust in my potential skills to serve the American youth.”
Happy Thanksgiving of the year 2011!
