Shh…listen.

I came outside to write today. It’s quiet during the day–only the slight rustle of oak trees. I still feel Fall in the air–the heat doesn’t hide its approach. The different angle of the sun’s rays always gives it away. The wind has picked up slightly and leaves are beginning to rain down.

I love the coming of every season. I think it’s the change–a sense of rebirth.

I’m looking for a different angle as well and hope at times like these, that a change of scenery, and of season, will provide it. Sometimes we only need to listen to find our place again. My writing has been such a struggle of emotions over the last couple of years. So as I let myself sit here and absorb the sounds of nature, this is what I see:

Blue Days

Fall's approach

Squeak

Oaks

Purple Fountain

If I step outside for even a few minutes, my whole perspective changes. And that’s a really good thing.

  1. Love how you captured the changes, I could feel like I’m practically there. So nice to filter out all the cell phones and urban noises isn’t it?

  2. Thanks. Yes, it sure is. Lends a true sense of perspective. We’re a noisy bunch.

  3. Unfortunately, I live in a concrete jungle, I had to go a fair way to be surrounded by the environment. The closest being the beach, so that’s not too bad; especially with summer approaching!
