The Veil

There's something about walking the trails at night during the darkness of an autumn journey as opposed to a journey of a mid-summer hike. Although I know that it is only a shift in my perception due to changes in the depth of the darkness, the crinkle of leaves, the sound of the wind in the semi shorn trees, my eyes see the shifting shapes comes out of the sky and stand there.
I'm fuckin scared man!

For me I think the fall fear has to do with all the Halloween stories I heard as a kid, and also I am reminded of the Headless Horsemen. There is definitely something spooky about taking a late evening fall hike.

Maybe we automatically think of death because nature is going through a death or decaying process with the falling leaves, browning plants, etc.
