Today is the last day of summer.
Tomorrow we shall greet the first day of autumn.
The memories of summer 2016 live on forever in the snapshots I have stored away in the albums of my heart and I await with childlike expectancy to see what surprises autumn intends to share.
I can only imagine the grandeur of the vibrant colors that shall soon decorate our trees and the blustery days that shall shake those trees bare. Autumn is a time of turbulence. To the onlooker, it can appear to be a time of utter confusion and disarray. Yet autumn is not alarmed. It has passed this way before and it is familiar with the rhythm of this season. It is not caught off guard by the upheaval.
Autumn understands that value of gracefully accepting what is and appreciating the ride.
Autumn knows that this time is a preparation for the winter dormancy that shall bring forth spring flowers and lead us into summer once again...
What tremendous lessons nature intends to teach...
Am I listening...??
Am I watching...??
What does Autumn teach you...??
