Another year gone by and the shades of autumn are here once again. Every year the shades are slightly different than the previous year, making it a new experience each time. How lucky I am to be dazzled by a unique spectrum each year. I love summer and never want it to end, but the there is something about the autumn that I embrace each year. I am not sure if it is anything in particular about the autumn or just the needed change each year. I am not the kind of person that is quick to accept big change, but as I am entering the autumn of my life, I sense the colors will change whether I want them to or not. It is the cycle of life.
I recently had the hard drive on my work horse computer fail without warning. I am very thankful that my dear friend CJ, encouraged me to get an external hard drive to back up my pictures two years ago. Thank you! I did not back up everything on that computer which resulted in some anxiety, but I have now come to realize that it was time to let go of that part of my life and start a new chapter. The canvas is now empty and the timing is perfect. So, let autumn roll in. I look forward to having a retired husband, spending winters in the desert, and exploring new trails. I hope to embrace the new shades of life and the changes that lie ahead.
