We’re rounding into the second week of September and autumn presses ever forward. Though it is a balmy 76 degrees (F) this morning and it looks as if we will reach 90 degrees today, the signs of cooling weather are literally falling down all around us. The grass is littered with the discarded leaves of our walnut and elm trees. How easily the trees seem so readily able to let go of that which no longer serves them. Would that I felt such ease around letting go. Sometimes I feel like I hold onto something merely because it is so familiar to me, yet its service to me has long gone. I love how the trees teach me so much: stand tall, sway with the prevailing winds, reach for and revel in the sun, yield to the bathing rains, and let go when it is time. Exactly on time. Amazing! I include a picture of one of the nearby oaks, which continue to ripen their acorn laden branches, with much anticipation from the squirrels, who are busy checking their coming harvest. What’s up in your neck of the woods?
