I'm not sure why, but for me, Fall has always been a time of optimism. All the metaphors have the world going to sleep for the winter, but for me, Fall is when life revs up. Maybe I'll flesh those thoughts out a bit more at some future date, but for now, here's some musical optimism for you: "Yeager's Triumph" from The Right Stuff, composed by Bill Conti. This is real "Hey, America, let's go to the Moon!" stuff, right here.
