I keep saying the same thing.
The beauty of the woods
is breathtaking.

Everyone I come in contact with
the same words come out of my mouth
"this is the most beautiful Fall that I remember."

Wish I had more eloquent words
to describe what I see.
I can only post an image
and be so very thankful that I
have eyes to see this beauty
and a camera to capture what I see.

The clocks have been set back an hour.
 So many dark hours.

I do not feel like reading, cleaning, yoga
turning on TV or doing anything, even
my desk is piled high with paperwork.
Entering into these weeks
thinking of rest and an empty mind....

The tree colors this year were more vibrant then I remember. Was it from our warmer winter or hotter spring and summer? I don't know--I just enjoyed.

You have had a very full week. Your journal has reflected an exhausting swing of emotions from anxiety to pure joy. Enjoy your restful reflective Sunday in your wondrous woods. They are truly beautiful.

If I had that view...I would just sit and enjoy it. What a beautiful place to spend your later years in life. When we have days with not much to's like a present from God. Enjoy!

Since you are exactly where you want to be, then do exactly what you feel and enjoy the beauty of the woods. When your body has rested, then you can read, cook, tackle the desk.....Rest up!!!

wishing you a happy blessed Sunday.

After a spring and summer of hard work, I think we all should be ready for some rest. It is a beautiful day here, a golden day as you would say, for enjoying the beautiful fall colors. Hope you are having a glorious day!

I echo your sentiments so minutely it made me blink.
