“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden
One thing I’ve come to embrace since I retired is appreciation for the changing seasons. When I was still working the approach of autumn loomed on the horizon like a cloud of gloom. Now I welcome the change of seasons; autumn brings with it an opportunity to slow down and turn my attention toward other things.
Today I’m temporarily putting away my canning supplies and finishing up with the green peppers that are destined for the freezer. I’m taking a break next week as a very special visitor will be here with us.
