Autumn makes a double demand. It asks that we prepare for the future... But it also asks that we learn to let go-- to acknowledge the beauty of sparseness
Bonaro W. Overstreet
Autumn’s beauty lies in more than the colorful leaves and bluest of blue skies. It is a time for letting go. Letting go of the warm sunny days of summer gets more difficult for me as the years go by. Remembering last winter and how brutal it was makes it a little scary to even think about the approaching colder days ahead.
When Spring came round this year, I felt like a survivor. It was the most beautiful Spring that I could ever remember simply because the winter had way too many sub zero days.
I so enjoyed the summer days basking in the sun. With that said I’m reminded of a quote that has become dearer to me than ever.
If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Percy Bysshe Shelley
