Awesome Autumn

Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.
~Yoko Ono

For those of us who have experienced the magical change and richness of color that comes with autumn, “reverence” is a very fitting word. Another might be, “Wow” or maybe, “Awesome.”  For all of us, there are so many images that put us in touch with the magnificence of nature’s change. 

To stand before a tree in full autumn color is breathtaking, bringing to mind again the mysteries of life and the cycle of change.

To jump in a pile of leaves delights the soul and opens our child’s heart.

To see the vibrant , autumnal colors; the deepest reds, rich, golden yellows and fiery oranges against the blue sky inspires gratitude and hope.

To watch leaves float gently to the ground touches a quiet spot in us, becoming a reminder to savor the moment as this, too, shall pass.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~ Albert Camus

Autumn is cool and beautiful. Autumn is a perfect time to reflect and be grateful.
