Each season brings its own pleasures. Contentment and fulfillment come, in part, from enjoying each delight as it appears, then letting the seasons pass and new joys take their place.
For now, these are my small delights...
Scuffling through fallen leaves, while admiring the structural elegance of bare tree limbs,
taking time to notice small details, one leaf in the midst of a million,
reading, knitting or conversing with the glow of a candle adding just a bit more light and warmth to a quiet room
warm apple cake, redolent with cinnamon.
And my favourite October poem excerpt....
"Listen, the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves."
