Signs of Change – Cirrus and Browning Cornstalks

Invited or not, autumn is on its way. Cornstalks are drying up and leaves will be doing so soon. Cirrus in the sky signal coming weather changes.

There is nothing like a walk in an open field in autumn. Changes will come soon, but for now we savor each fair day.

“To say it was a beautiful day would not begin to explain it. It was that day when the end of summer intersects perfectly with the start of fall.”

– Ann Patchett

A Misty March Morning Beside the Lake

Prints of boots dot the sand in front of this lakeside bench, but before we know it the tread impressions will be replaced by the soles of bare feet. Snow flies today, but summer is just three months away.

The First Lovely Leaf – Unfortunately

This lovely leaf is, unfortunately, a likely harbinger of many to come. Autumn may be a lovely season, but I tend to focus a bit much upon the future at times.

Thus, I’m often more unsettled by the thought of coming winter than I am when it’s actually here.

Once it arrives, I tend to take things one day at a time. I should do that now, so as to fully appreciate the change.

As John Denver said, “If it were mine to make the change, I think I’d let it be. But I don’t remember  hearing anybody asking me.”

Savoring Late Summer

As hot summer days wane, the best way to make memories that last through winter is to spend time on a sandy beach. This new spot was serene, not yet discovered by too many tourists. A wondrous site to commune with nature, at the junction of land and water where so many species convene.
