This past Sunday morning was the first day in months where the temperature was below 60ºF and the humidity was low.
Delightful. Refreshing. Clear.
I was able to drink my first mug of coffee while sitting on the deck all by myself. Experiencing the stillness of the early morning centered me in a way that makes me feel whole.
Hopeful. Capable. Calm.
It wasn’t until I looked up into the trees behind our house that I realized how soon it’ll be autumn. And that I wasn’t alone out there on the deck. Two birds, way up high, were keeping me company.
Cheerful. Balanced. Orange.
Autumn is about letting go of what used to work and enjoying what is. I’ve found over the years that I can embrace its message because I’m open to new ideas and seem to have an aptitude for adjusting to what is.
Creative. Grateful. Aware.
Meaning that in about another month this tree, next to where the birds were sitting, will be a showy mess of fall color. And when it is I plan to be engrossed in new projects and a healthier way of life. Hello Autumn!
Determined. Grounded. Focused.
