Remembering Infinity: Fall

For me, fall is a time of introspection and reflection.

For me, fall is a time of introspection and reflection.

Fall has always been my dad’s favorite time of the year.  The brilliant blaze of color as leaves are set aflame, shadows lengthening in the softening sunlight, and the savory taste of wood smoke in the crisp, cool air are all signs that another summer has passed and winter is on the way.

For me, fall is a time of introspection and reflection.  I often feel compelled to pause, enjoy the beauty of the present moment, and appreciate the graceful, eternal currents of time and change as they flow smoothly by.  At such times, I typically find myself drawn to rivers, ponds, or lakes—all places where still water abides.  As I watch the sun shimmer, glint, and dance across the surface, I know the water is being softly stirred by life—one gentle ripple at a time.

Before long, I find myself mesmerized, immersed, and seemingly at one with the reflections of sky and the magnificent autumnal hues of red, orange, and yellow.  My mind wanders back through the events of the past year, back through those of years past, and often to the wonder of lives past—for I’ve grown increasingly certain that I’ve known these too.

In quiet solitude, I think about relationships gained and lost, lessons learned, and the many things I’ve left to accomplish before the essence of my being is set free to experience it’s next “mission”.  This is the perfect time to examine, appreciate, and let go of the things and behaviors that no longer serve me.  Just as the trees release this year’s leaves to be recycled by the earth below, I shed my own leaves—those of my outdated, spent thoughts, beliefs, and ideas.

Once I’ve cleared my life limbs of the old, I feel free to begin storing energy for all the new growth I know I’ll experience ahead.  This is the time of year when many of nature’s plants and creatures do the same.  They busily prepare for a long winter’s rest—when they’ll dream of spring and the renewed life that will burst forth once the snows melt and the earth begins to warm again.  As we nourish and till the soil for our next growing season, we naturally begin to imagine and dream too—and our dreams are the seeds of our future.  Among other fine things, I intend to sow the dreams of Peace, Harmony, and Love.

What dreams will you be sowing this spring?

  3. Me too I will sow seeds of love, peace, joy, patience, gentleness, kindness because I purposed in my heart to so when my daughter was born. Being her momma changed me! That was 21 years ago and today I can say I am reaping that harvest 100 fold! Life is good and your blog and posts are peace giving! I love them! I’ve been so busy with work and life, life sure stopped me and slowed me down! I needed to read your blog tonight! Thank you! Blessings to you sweet friend!

    • Thank you so much, Michelle Marie! I love seeing all your cards and posts as well. That’s what makes “blogging” so worthwhile and enjoyable. Folks who would otherwise have no chance of getting to know one another can share thoughts and ideas without concern for the miles that may stretch between them!

      Being a parent is certainly a challenge, but it’ SO worth every moment. I’ve been blessed with a youngster myself–and, while I haven’t exactly loved every minute as a parent, I’ve certainly appreciated all of them. 🙂

      I’m so glad you found the words and feelings you needed here. It’s my greatest hope (and intent) that somehow the words I share may be of value to someone else! Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts…you and everyone else have made my day!

      May you enjoy an abundance of Peace, Love, and more Happiness than your heart could possibly hold!

      🙂
