What Autumn means to me Leigh Harris
As a parent I start by thinking practical. It is a time of new growth and development for our children as they enter a new school year. Newness brings energy and vibrancy, but when combined with autumn, it feels calmer. It is as if we have made a turn on a new path and feel comfortable with our decision.
Perhaps this calm and comfort comes from the turning leaves. I can’t help but pause at the beauty of the colors exploding in the air. This means that I stop what I am doing, slow down my busy life for a moment and observe my surroundings. I take time to go for more walks and feel the leaves crunch under my feet.
Because I enjoy those walks, I want to share them, so I invite my family to join me. Instead of us all going separate directions (as the beginning of September seems to encourage), we walk together and regroup. I feel more connected to people around me when I connect to the earth’s autumn changes.
It is my favorite time of year.
