I so wanted to download all my fall photos from my weekend at Carmel and share them with you, but alas, working on an upcoming presentation and taking phone calls that need to be taken has left me having to revise my “to do” list for today.
I can offer this much from my eyes: a tease of coming attractions. I selected it for my new Facebook cover photo, and the more I look at it, the more I see.
It’s a simple, red leaf, but it stood out to me, begged me to stop, stoop and listen to what it had to say.
Now, I see more than just the red leaf. I see what surrounds it, too: brown leaves curled like taco shells; green leaves with brown spots and holes where critters have munched; grass that seems to be holding onto a summer that lasted far too short. And the earth below, capturing all that falls into itself, readying for its leafy covering to become part of itself, soon.
I have mostly been inside, ignoring fall for other pursuits. This weekend was really the first time I allowed myself the chance to absorb more of this, my favorite of all seasons, and I will share more soon. For now, though, please allow Vicky’s beautiful perspective to bring you to a place of serenity on this fair fall Monday: Be Still.
Q4U: What, if any, questions came to mind after reading Vicky’s post?
