Release

Leafless tree

Trees bravely shed their leaves. What can my soul release? What things are good enough to keep?

So October

It is so October

The sun shines brightly on leaves yellow, orange, brown

The wind gusts, liberating more leaves as they yield to the season’s inevitably

You’ll need long sleeves if you venture outside

Today

Feels like a day for football

A day for hot chocolate and friends

Maybe have a roll in the crispy leaf pile

This beautiful day

This beautiful life

Is so October

The woods in Autumn

All of the Leaves

When Autumn comes, I feel compelled to take pictures of all of the dying or dead leaves.

Autumn leaf

This time of year makes me think of the song Autumn Leaves. There’s an interesting story behind the song. It comes from a French composer and a French poet.

Many artists have recorded it, but my favorite rendition is by Nat ‘King’ Cole. Cole was my father’s favorite, so he holds a special place in my heart. I grew up hearing his albums.
