Fall and Winter

It’s fall here in Michigan. The leaves are disappearing with each wind that passes, but thankfully there are a few survivors that are shimmering their orange/red leaves and defying the cold snap and winter winds. Those who are summer lovers are upset and unwilling to let the heat and sunshine of the three warm months of the year, but I am getting excited. You see fall and winter for me are the most beautiful times of the year.

Fall is when you see the bones of the trees that seem like lace against the dark skies, and it is those grey days that get me excited as the scents that are distinctive to fall spread just outside my window. It is not the dressed up days of summer, but rather the times I see the world as it really is and then as winter comes I can see them dressed up so beautifully in the elegance of the white ballgowns that drape gently on everything! Time can slow to a crawl and people must become slow and thoughtful in their driving and stepping out.

This is definitely my favorite time of year. For me, it is the time for meditating on the simple things of my life and enjoying the changes outside my window, and within myself.
