September Outings

I'm not sure what I notice first, school buses or spiderwebs. Maybe it's the shifting sunlight as night arrives just a bit earlier every day, bringing brilliant sunsets to savor.

Autumn lays a feast of sensory abundance, so fill your cup with beauty, movement, and change. Enjoy the scent of ripening apples and wood smoke wafting by on the wind, stirring childhood memories of a cozy cup of warm cider. Feel the cooling morning temperatures lying as misty clouds of fog, damply enveloping you and hiding the deer as they amble by. Listen well to the Canada geese honking as they rush to assemble their ancient flying "V" formations. And pause to thank a spider for her web, for its beautiful symmetry radiates good work in the world and is a lesson for us all.

May the abundance of autumn bring color and a bountiful harvest to you and yours. Enjoy these outings this fall!
