Fall has (dare I say) arrived here in the south. The heavy wet blanket of heat and humidity that has wrapped itself around us the last several months has finally released its grip, leaving us to bask in the cooler, drier temperatures of fall and winter. I have always loved this time of year, enjoying the vibrant jeweled tones of the changing landscape and the intoxicating scents of pumpkin and spice that make us feel so warm and cozy.
I am an early riser and with the sun making its appearance later and later each day, I have had an opportunity to witness the most stunning sunrises as my doodle, Sawyer, and I walk into the clearing each morning. I love listening to nature waking up as we make our way down the winding path. The sound of chirping birds and the gentle breeze rustling through the leaves often lulls me into a peaceful meditation. I tend to connect with my breath when I walk so during that time each morning, the distractions, worries, and busyness of life disappear, leaving my body, mind and spirit in a state of tranquility. And, by the time I reach my front porch, I am ready to start my day.
I hope you all have a present moment today.
Enjoy your Sunday.
