Lamenting October

If there was a pause button on the Wheel of Seasons, I’d be pressing it any time now. I’d hold off the falling of the leaves, the darkness of the shorter days and the coming of very cold nights. As life goes I have no choice other to embrace the moment, breathe it in so deep that it will sustain me until Spring. October always brings a heightened awareness of all of the beauty that surrounds me and that is a good thing. The anticipation of saying goodbye for a while to the abundant life of summer causes me to take notice of how much there is to appreciate just outside my door.

  1. Beautiful photographs! I love Autumn and I’ve also been enjoying long walks amongst the fleeting colours. Personally I love winter and find comfort in the dark days but I love your description of taking a deep breath to last until Spring. Lovely post x
