Last weekend we closed our summer retreat. It is always sad to do this but the weather was glorious. The Fall colours are breath taking. Blues and yellows appear in combination that you only see at this time of year. The sun warmed us as we worked then took breaks to walk in the woods.
This time of year there are no bugs so we could take our time and really enjoy the beauty. There was so much peace in this place that it quietens the inner chatter. The only things that could be heard were the scampering of the chipmunks as they gather and bury their nuts.
Nature always reminds me of my place in the universe. It goes on doing what it always does no matter what my obsessions are at the time. I like to go and watch it just be. It never fails to amaze me that it continues to grow and change without any attention. And it also seems to do this with such beauty. The moss on the logs grow in the most unique patterns unconcerned in potential onlookers judgments. Ah, if only it were that easy for us humans.
