in memory of Mary Pulley
Autumn furs rings
winter rolls of fat
and blue road.
Why did it choose to follow
this arbitrary path?
I cried for an hour afterwards:
something I had never done before,
not even for you.
The soft crunch
of collar bone
like the soft plop
beside the bed
a hundred miles away.
“Nothing is ever lost as time passes, it merely metamorphoses into something as wonderful or, in some cases, into something even better than before.”
― Carole Carlton, Mrs Darley’s Pagan Whispers: A Celebration of Pagan Festivals, Sacred Days, Spirituality and Traditions of the Year.
“Right and wrong were shades of meaning, not sides of a coin.”
― Louise Erdrich, Love Medicine
I did make time to slow down and enjoy the day. I rode the bus half-way home after work and then walked the remainder of the way. It took me 45 minutes but it was wonderful!
A beautiful fall day. Not hot, not cold. Just perfect.
A perfect day to slow down, take a deep breath and relish the colors of fall!
I hope you get a chance to slow down and enjoy the colors around you.
The truth is, most of us discover where we are headed when we arrive.” ~ Bill Watterson
