Mornings are crisp and the evergreens flanking our front porch steps have donned festive red berries.
Goldenrod shows off its honey-colored mane as it beckons with a come-hither sway in the late afternoon sun.
All signs that autumn—a time of harvest, a time of reflection—is on its way. Len and I have played hard (and I do mean hard) all summer. Now is the season we intentionally downshift and live gently—we reflect, and we recharge our personal batteries.
“Autumn’s the mellow time.” – William Allingham, poet
What’s your autumn strategy?
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
