Summer slips into Fall
I try to get outside for a 2-3 mile walk every day. This gives me a chance to clear my mind, get a little exercise, and enjoy being offline and out in the wilds for a little while.
One of the best things about these walks is getting to watch as the seasons pass from one to the next. Plants sprout, grow, flower, and fade.
Squirrels are born and grow up to put away nuts for winter as the first leaves wither and begin to fall.
Through it all I think about how everything, even storms and misfortune, fits together. It helps me keep ahold of what’s really important versus all of life’s distractions. Get out and soak up Fall to see what I mean.
