I wandered outside this morning and was greeted by autumn.
I breathe deep.
I fully take it in...the cool, damp air
The sight of falling leaves
The smell of nature preparing for hibernation
I'm never quite ready for the change of season.
Why does it always surprise me? Of course I know it is coming...as it does every year.
And I treasure these days.
Autumn is my favorite time of the year because it is so brief.
Autumn forces us to live in the moment.
The Brevity of Autumn colors, so stunning one moment and gone the next; so that we must stop and take it in.
Autumn gives us pause for what we know is coming.
