running in autumn has a lot of associations for me. when the air's cold, the smell reminds me of korea when i was stationed there (minus the smell of the ondol charcoal heaters). the colors of the leaves remind me of driving up the adirondack northway with tommy vincent on the trip to canada where we almost wound up murdering each other. just the whole feeling of the day reminds me of school days when i was a kid. there was something about having that big block of time you didn't control that made you appreciate all those other hours in a way you didn't in the summer, when your time was your own.
