I realised this weekend just how little I have been out and about recently. Time has disappeared, eaten up by work and general day to day chores and living. In the meantime, the seasons have most definitely changed, it’s now cold and dark, seeing the sun will be a bit of a novelty until spring rolls around!
But even though I feel we have moved into winter (quite swiftly in my opinion!) Autumn still seems to be hanging on in there, reluctant to leave us to it just yet!
I went for a few short walks over the weekend and found the colours of Autumn were still quite abundant.
Surrounding by these rustic tones I felt quite calm and soothed. I took deep restorative breaths of the very crisp air, feeling my body relax.
It seems to surprise me every year how much I enjoy Autumn. Maybe it’s an age thing, when I was younger I don’t think I ever really noticed the change from one season to the next. But now I’m older, although I dread the winter, Autumn brings along its own joys.
I can see it hanging on in there, but it won’t be long until the trees are bare and ground grows firmer with frost…oops, too late!
But for the moment, I am enjoying the final fling of these Autumnal colours!
