Seasonal Tones

November 1, 2015 (1)

The 11th month of our year, November originates from the Latin novem (nine) as it marked the ninth month of the Roman calendar.

In the northern hemisphere, it heralds the final days of autumn, the loss of light and warmth, and the transition to winter’s monochrome and minimalism.

This next-to-last month is mature, pensive, revealing sweet melancholy as a natural, necessary season of life. Greetings to November!
