I don't know why this song makes me think of fall. Maybe it came out in the fall the first time I heard it.
After doing a little research on Wikipedia- I was absolutely correct. This song by The Byrds was #80 on the charts in October 1965, and was #1 by December 1965. The song was written by Pete Seeger in the late 1950's
The song is "Turn, Turn, Turn" by the Byrds. It is also known as "To Everything There Is A Season". The lyrics, except for the title which is repeated throughout the song, and the final verse of the song, are adapted word-for-word from Chapter 3 of the
Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible.
This video clip is from one of the Byrds' performances.
I'm sure this has probably been done several times before, but thought I would add my interpretation in photos to this song.
To everything there is a season,
and a time for every purpose under heaven:
a time to be born,
a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace,
and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war,
and a time for peace.

Chapter 3, Versus 1-8
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I hope you can embrace with loving kindness the many gifts you have received in your life. Maybe, if possible, you could give back a little something by giving a donation to your local food pantry or soup kitchen. The work that these groups do for the community is so necessary and they can always use your help.
May you be truly blessed this season with health, love, and happiness.
