Autumn and Changes



 Where I live winter doesn't come early and it doesn't last long enough for me to get tired of it. I love the change, the cool winds in autumn. There is a song called "Southland in the Springtime" by the Indigo Girls, and each time I hear it, especially in the spring or fall, it doesn't matter which, I FEEL it deep in my bones. So deep I'll stand at an open window, close my eyes and feel the cool change in the air washing over my skin like a hand smoothing silk, so intense that I cry sometimes. Something resonates inside me when the air turns from baking hot humidity to chilly, light and fresh. I welcome it. I welcome the few months of cold weather I have to look forward to, even if my garden turns brown and is cut back to stubs. I don't think I'd do well in extreme temperature changes, but here in the south where the transitions are smooth, I thrive.
What are the changes taking place where you live? Do you like one season over another or welcome them all, just to have change?

  1. HI Lisa,

    And smooth transitions of the seasons, a reflection of the way life could be. A cool change you shall have. As the leaves fall, the resplendent colours paint the lawn with the glory of it all.

    Seasons are subtle in England, this green and peaceful land. I embrace each season and another change, a positive challenge in my life.

    Be well, my friend.

    Gary :)

    1. And a challenge you can count on. I LOVE England, have some kind of love affair with it. Miss it when I'm not there...

  3. I've always had a love affair with fall ever since I read books and watched movies that made a big deal of the season. Now that the season is upon us and I can watch the change of colors in the trees around me, the love affair gives me reason to be happy every day.

    1. I so agree. I really don't want to find out what life is like without the changes that take place around us on our planet.... Thanks Anne, for coming by!

  4. One of the things that I enjoy about Florida is that, for the most part, the seasons never change. It's either hot....more or less... :)

  7. Unfortunately where I live, we don't have seasons per se. But I love watching movies and reading about people's mood change during season's change.

  8. Hi Lisa .. we're probably on our last day of our Indian Summer - windows open, sun shining, little wind - but the cold is about to hit - I relish the day now.

    I really don't like winter winter - as we had last year .. and it seemed to drag on ... I'd love to get back to the four seasons .. something has changed and England is unsure of itself weatherwise -

    I love the coming of Spring .. but I love all seasons - though hate the cold!!!

    Fun post to read .. and autumn and winter offer much .. cheers Hilary
