Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message, and to the beginning of the fall which is the second-best time of year here in Arizona! As our days get shorter and the weather cools off, the fourth quarter is full of opportunity. Don’t put your goals and aspirations on cruise control. There is still plenty of time to buy a home, sell a home, go on a diet before the holidays, apply for a new job, buy a new car…you fill in the blank. There is still plenty of time. Let’s make it a great week!


"Crispy air and azure skies, 
High above, a white cloud flies, 
Bright as newly fallen snow.
Oh the joy to those who know October! 
Colors bright on bush and tree.
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple and brown and gold.
Thy beauty words have never told. October! 
Scolding sparrows on the lawn, 
Rabbits frisking home at dawn, 
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain, 
All in harmony acclaim, October! 
Brown earth freshly turned by plow, 
Apples shine on bended bough, 
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat, 
And satisfaction reigns complete. October! 
Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air, 
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life's worth living when we say, October!"
-  Joseph Pullman Porter
