Each year the cycle of life continues in it’s designated formation.We look around our lives and marvel at the great beauty of nature’s brush. It paints a lovely scene four times each year.
Fading from one season to another. There’s an allotment set for it. Red, golden, orange, yellow and brown leaves and foliage turns the world into a beautiful array of colors. On buildings, statues, sidewalks and other outdoor annexes they leave their mark so we know they existed.
October is a festival month. It means changes and thankfulness for the harvest. It means thing cools down and changes from the heat of the summer. Chilly, dewy, fog dense mornings remind us of this inevitable change.
The gradually cooling down is the preparation for another season. Just as Spring prepared us and the world, the earth for Summer; Fall does the same for Winter.
Changes aren’t bad. We may think they are for they often arouse us from our customary comfort, but they are a part of life. We often accomplish our greatest achievements through changes.
Each year, we too, grow and change. We aren’t the same person we were last five years ago, nor even the same person we were last year. We live, learn and experience changes just as the seasons of the earth.
October means changes. Nature at it’s best.
It’s the height of a mellow symphony. It’s the concerto of the seasons.
