was 67 degrees, when I headed, out the door for my morning walk. The onset of Indian Summer; I so love this time of year, cool in the morning, heating up during the day and brisk at night. When the weather shifts, so don't we. Our routines change, our mood, our habits seem to transform, when a new season arrives. It will still feel like summer here for a few months. More like the summers of my youth, when you can go outside and enjoy hiking, biking, etc. without the humidity dragging you down. Fall in the south is actually my summer in New England. We have a long fall, here, which is fine with me. It is one of my favorite seasons. They all are my favorite ;-D
The experts tell us Fall is like a second New Year, we can turn over a new leaf, begin again. Another
thought is autumn is like a second spring. I prefer the New Year idea. I like the turn over a new leaf idea.
I guess there is some history that leads us into this line of thinking, The Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Persians began their new year with the fall equinox, and the Greeks celebrated it on the winter solstice.
As the leaves begin to change their mood and dress in their seasonal best, what leaf will you be turning over? Me, I want to have courage to continue on my creative path and see where it leads me. I might have to leave it up in the air at times, but this time of year, frees me up a bit. What leaf will you turn?
