The autumn is a magic season, very intense. After that the summer has carried away its heat and the frenzy of the parties and shows that make us confused and stunned, we regain our spaces, our time of our inner world.


In calm and serenity, we admire the nature around us, that is full of life, with its interchange of clouds, sun and wind. A trend nature, that involves ourself and to which we lapse into it, as we are aware it regenerate us in mind and body. The Autumn is not the season of sadness and gloom beacause the trees are leafless and winter coming soon. Insteead it's important to understand when the change arrives through fine power.
