Fall Leaves

I'll admit it.

I treasure the metaphors and corresponding epiphanies to be found in nature and its seasons.

Scratching the surface of fall, we find messages about transformation, bringing boundaries into focus, sending roots deeper in preparation for the stresses ahead, the journey of letting go and settling down, the role of wind in that journey,
becoming more colorful and fully realized with age, and celebrating the critical role of death and dying in the cycling of nutrients.

That's just so cool.

I am grateful to this lady and this lady in particular for the insights they've shared that contribute to my understanding of fall.
