Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

This Autumn

The days of heat wind down, and even though I enjoyed the summer's events ~  this jacket I wear this morning, reminds me that Autumn has begun.

Yesterday's sunset of blue and peach, a clear revealing of the coming beauty ~  is welcomed as the changes arrive in all splendor.

My life seems to flow as this new Autumn does ~
a time of longing for warm embraces, yet a time of cooling calm.

The land I walk has furnished me with pears and purple grapes ~
a summer treasure that gives way to the soon harvesting of walnuts.

I am blessed, in spite of the trials and tribulations encountered ~
summer slowly morphs into another season,
one I've always loved best ~ Autumn.

The Old Farmer's Almanac:   In 2014, the autumnal equinox brings the fall season to the Northern Hemisphere on: September 22 at 10:29 P.M. EDT. I think I felt it arrive!!


  1. Hi Dixie. I couldn't live anywhere that didn't have proper seasons. I love the Autumn too and also the Spring.
    The colours and the very smell of Autumn are inspiring to me!
    Continuing my new experiment of naming the music I am listening to while posting or commenting - right now it's: Neil Young’s ‘Heart of Gold’. Listen on You Tube:

  2. Me too Francis! By the way I loved the orks!!!

  3. bazza, you mention the smell of Autumn, and I know exactly what you mean. I enjoy walks around my home or at the nearby park.
    I remember that Neil Young song! Gosh how long since I've heard it? Thanks so much for leaving the link! And I can't wait to see what you painted to that song... be sure and let us have a peek!
