Monday I looked out at my back patio and noticed that all my impatient flowers were dead, sadly the results of our first frost. Also a metaphor of how we take beauty and life for granted at times. Sunday the flowers filled my pots with vibrant colors; the next day wilted and closed up, done! In youth we rarely worry about aging, one day it’s here the next it’s gone. If we’re lucky we still have a young spirit and embrace the change!
Theses autumn tree photos were taken last week, Monday when I ventured by again, they were barren. Fleeting moment of magnificence gone…but nature is truly amazing how it goes through so many transitions, and manages to have days of phenomenal awe striking beauty, to dark drab ugly moments. So why is it that we doubt nature, and the way things are? Next spring, new growth, without help from a single living soul, trees replenish their leaves, seedlings sprout, life continues on. Life and nature is ever changing yet so much the same.
This morning I was wondering what and who are the people or events that inspired profound change in your life?
