Walking out into the woods I found Autumn had cast her golden spell across the land. Everything green was now dipped in shimmering coppers and bronze, and the long low shadows drew lines across the earth. The light was magical and edged with soft rising mist. The glory of change and the ever turning earth was lit with wild abandon all around.
Nothing lasts forever, not even this years long lingering summer, and change sweeps in fresh new beauty and unimagined colours. Do you delight in the turning seasons and their unique colours, or do you like many see Autumn purely as a dreaded sign of the coming winter? See if you can let go of your imagined tales of winter woe, and glory instead in the treat of autumns wildly beautiful palette in the here and now. Don’t get swept up in the dread of leaf clearing, instead plough into those piles of wonderful crisp leaves and kick around. Let your inner child guide you into the joy of Autumn and the glory of change, and leave the adult worries behind for a little while.
Autumn is a delicious treat to be savoured if you can. A glorious riot of colour and wild change. A time of release and transition, and a time of boots and gloves and coats, and candles in the evening. A move away from the bright warm light of summer into something quieter and more peaceful. Can you enjoy the change?
