Fall: The Glorious In Between

F. Scott Fitzgerald writes in the beloved The Great Gatsby, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”

This week brought us our first tastes of autumn weather, and boy, it was glorious. So at High Five we started thinking: What is it that makes everyone love the fall season so much?

Pumpkin spice lattes? Boots and scarves? Football Saturdays? The end of the hellish Oklahoma heat?

Autumn is so appealing because it is the “in between". We're gonna' get deep here with some song lyrics. Are ya ready?

Ben Rector sings, “life is not the mountain tops, it’s the walking in between,” in his song “I Like You”, and it couldn’t be more true. The in between is where ideas come. It is the quiet time between life’s highs and lows where we can collect ourselves and reconvene with our senses. It is where long summer days are behind us and long winter nights are before us. The air changes, holding promise and whimsy. Along with that promise, the crispness of the air makes us more in-tune with ourselves; autumn is the time for growth and change, just like the leaves on the trees. 

Make the decision to embrace the changing season. 

Here at High Five, we are in betweeners (yup, it's a word). We’ll help you find yourself and highlight the things that make you “you”.  An endless fountain of creativity and ideas, we will help you find the best form of representation for your business. We will work with you and help you grow into your best. 

Here’s to fall (-ing in love with High Five). 

What are your favorite parts of this in between season?
