Have you ever sat and just watch the leaves fall?
This morning, enjoying my first cup of coffee, I watched out my front window as the calm of the night changed to morning with a large gust that lifted the oak leaves up off the trees and showered them across the neighborhood. The small shrubs near the house shook so vigorously I wondered if a couple of squirrels were having a chase in them. Like a cloud, the leaves are lifting from the trees today - the last signs of fall - to blanket the earth, creating habitat and protection for the tiny critters of the Earth, so they may make it through another winter.
The interplay between the wind, the leaves, the winter, the animals, the seasons... everything knows how to work together, observe and you might just find your place in it all.
