These beautiful trees, on just the other side of the fairway where we live, always take my breath away. I can be carrying a load of laundry or walking into the kitchen or looking up from a good book and I’ll spy the gorgeous fall colors of these trees across the way.

I have a family member – more than one, now that I think of it – who laments the months of September and October because of ‘what comes next’. How sad. As for me, I fully appreciate the joy and exquisite splendor of not just fall but every season, come what may. For I know that everything around us is forever changing and evolving and I prefer to enjoy the jubilant majesty of what nature provides, right here and right now.
