Change is hard. A truth most adults know well. 

So why is it that every year leaves do what most people can't
so dramatically, 

with such ease, 

in such a spectacular way?

I just hope the next time change affects my life, 

I'll face the upcoming winter 

with the same dignity as a leaf

and dressed in fabulous new clothes. 

So when I look at my reflection, my heart heavy with worry,

 I'll remember how easy leaves make it all seem, 

and embrace life with open arms, 

bright optimism, 
and a ready smile. 
May you enjoy these remaining autumn weeks watching leaves blanket the ground with color and grace.

  1. I love this time of year too. Each leaf has its story to tell. We usually end up with a basket of them by the door, from walks and school. Lovely pictures.
