Fall is coming to an end as the color abates and hides for the winter. Rain rain replaces the clear crisp days and soon it will also pass and turn to snow. My favorite time of the year will pass and i will get another year older. I am so lucky to have seen so many falls and I long to see many more. Fall is a time for reflection for myself and i often times look very inward. It was a great time to walk around the wooded areas and to see things like this rock. Ugly to a great many people but to me it is just a way God has of showing us another side of beauty. In the last gasps of a season the color still lingers on and takes on new colors and a new deepness for the darks and lights. In the beginning of fall we see yellow trees and actively look for them and at the end of fall we see yellow, if only we will look for it.
It is the last moments of fall. Autumn came and is almost gone. The crisp air is almost the strong winter wind that takes our breath away. The calm and quiet of fall is giving way to the lonely and desolate days of winter. The sky is colder looking, the ground is harder and the grass is dying. Leaves left on the ground lie in wait to deaden the grass underneath. It is not the end, instead the continuation of a life cycle that continues on whether we are hear to see it or not.
