Colors of the Wind

Have you noticed somewhere along the way it has become Fall?

It hadn't really occurred to me yet, that is, until I looked outside this week and it was raining golden leaves.  As they swirled, and danced about with their invisible partner I stood silently to watch the display.  It was several moments later when I noticed I'd been holding my breath, almost as if an exhale would've put a stop to the entire production.  I was thankful for the pause.  The calm before the storm, if you will.  I needed it.  I needed to see something beautiful - something occurring without having anything to do with me whatsoever.  The leaves don't need my permission to play with the wind, and the wind certainly isn't asking anyone anything either!  I felt small ... and it was nice.  The time of year has come back around, yet again, and things are changing once more.  Don't forget to let yourself enjoy it.  It's wonderful, I promise!
