Today feels like a lifetime away since I went back home to be with my family for my uncle's funeral. While there, summer was surging on, flowers were abundant and traces of fall were only evident from the pumpkins on my sister's patio table. Was it only two weeks ago?
Moments ebb and flow, we gather, we mourn, we gather, we celebrate. Oh life is wonderful with the ups and downs on a roller coaster. Seasons seems to flicker by faster and faster. I stop and capture the moment with my camera, trying to memorize that second-what I see and hear. The hum of the cars down below my hill, the leaves changing colors before me. Squirrels are scampering and acting foolish in their darting about, nut gathering becomes a frantic activity involving death defying road crossings.
I want October to last forever. I want the leaves, the chill and the coziness of the month to drag on and on. I know it won't. I will one day wake up, the trees will be barren, the crickets and locusts will be silenced and the winter air will envelope me. I like that too. Yesterday on our daily walk, I felt the evening creeping closer and realizing the after dinner walk will be ending all too soon.
I don't usually do intentions on a monthly basis. However this month I want to stop, look and listen every single day. Maybe I will write down what I'm thinking or maybe I will snap a photo or maybe I will do nothing but just "be".
Won't you join me?
Now for some linking, I finished Amanda's Wholly Ordinary course and I loved it! I enjoyed her daily emails and working at my own pace. Her writing is exquisite :)
