The cooler air, the different light, the crispness on your cheeks.
Autumn is certainly here now and with it everything seems to be deeply exhaling.
A gentle sigh.
Not the sticky wet heat that was summer.
A chance to stop and look at things with an alertness that I haven’t felt for months.
A soft breeze from far away mountain tops, stop me…
Tilting my head towards it, I embrace it and let it fill my soul.
Autumn brings promise.
A promise of creativity, warming foods, cradled mugs, looped scarves, and long exploring walks holding soft little hands.
Hands that one day will shake mine off in embarrassment.
So I’m savouring every second.
