“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

~ Albert Camus

Images of the changing landscape are everywhere. Photographers, and those who are simply struck with the grandeur of the changing season, share images of brilliant gold, orange, and red—autumn’s finest putting on a show and then falling to the ground. Colourful mulch, in the wild; colourful work, in our landscapes and manicured yards.

I appreciate the beauty of the “big picture” but I also like the up-close-and-personal view at this time of year. I must get out and enjoy it more. Rumour has it there’s a change coming.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I love to look at others’ photos of their changing colors, trees, shrubs. Mostly, up here, we just get yellow and then dead. 🙂

    1. You made me smile with that “yellow and then dead” comment, Karen. I imagine there’s a unique and simple happy beauty even in that. ?
