With the sizzling summer vibe seemingly still upon us,
Fall Commencement (立秋) has already arrived.
Perceivably, autumn should bring forth some nippiness,
yet there are other perspectives
stating that the Chinese character of “autumn”(秋) is a compound of the two Chinese characters - “grain”(禾) and “fire”(火),
which signify the season of harvest
as well as the parchedness of autumn
that can easily provoke wildfires.
I’m sure there are many more interpretations pertaining to the Chinese character of “autumn”(秋),my fans, what comes to your mind when you think of this character?
