One line in the post really resonated with me - like a line of the sweetest poetry really. It just went to what I am feeling at the end of this Fall season, as the leaves are blowing off the trees and the branches are being struck bare, and changes are happening within and outside of me at a pace that I feel unprepared for.
And here are the results :

These are the words that Connie wrote that touched me so much :
The leaves of my heart are changing. That is what I am feeling. That uncertainty, not bad and not good, just different,
that feeling that some things are ending and other things are beginning,
that desire to go inward yet knowing that that means letting go of some things...
The leaves are changing and falling away...
And I need to remember to be kind to myself
as I make my way through...
This beautiful heart deserves that.
(Thanks to Connie for the inspiration and for the permission to use her words here.)
Enjoy this Autumn Sunday, beautiful Ones !
