I thought you might enjoy a quick look around my neighborhood. It’s hilly in spots around here which I don’t mind at all since this allows for a bird’s eye view of the forest.
Within the forest there are many wooded paths to walk through, and I especially love the feeling of being wrapped gently by a canopy of tree limbs suspended above.
Sights of sunshine colored berries always brightens up my mood…
…and here are some pretty petite petals with heads raised towards the sky.
During my walks around the neighborhood there are fields of red as far as the eye can see.
And beneath my feet there are prickly pine cones scattered all over the ground…these punctuations of rough texture perfectly offsets the soft bed of pine needles.
Very soon the lakes around here will be hugged in vibrant swaths of color (I took this photo last year,) bringing deep and satisfying beauty…I can hardly wait.
As I stand within the shadows of anticipation I have to remind myself that it’s good to be patient…it’s good to be in the moment.
As much as I look forward to the peak of Fall, I know to take advantage of the view as it is right now. And right now everything still glistens in green…so lovely and alive and full of promise.
