Find the peace and pass it on… calmness is contagious.
This is what I like about early Autumn. It is the calm, the peace over the landscape. The peacefulness of place tugs and pulls.
And when the season of summer winds down, the world of everything awaits. Things are more interesting, more intoxicating.
Things that don’t matter, just do. Creativity seems heightened. Things that have no real beauty just seem to scream that they do. Plants just pop and explode.
Each year, fall seems to come in too slow then rush to the next season, one filled with festivities and families. Thanksgiving and Halloween are both Fall events, and they begin a season of heightened activity.
I see Summer in that way, a time when too many things happen. I think that is why I like winter after the New Year so much, the calm returns, the landscape rests.
As we fall into the season of down, Autumn calls out for reflection. It asks for a peace to come over the landscape, and brings a time to find beauty in things passing. But just for a moment it seems, then all the commotion of the holidays comes rushing right in.
Find the calm and peacefulness to start your day. Calm is contagious, like the falling leaves, catch some today, even just for a moment.
