Chicago's unpredictable weather graced us with periwinkle blue skies, dappling sunlight through a few fluffy clouds, and soft balmy breezes. Today the temps dropped a bit but left us with a lovely autumn day.
This is one of my favorite times of year. The once bright green leaves of summer are knoq ablaze with color ... stunning golds, pumpkin oranges, and fiery reds. As I write this post, I am surrounded by blazing color framed in each one of my five living room windows. No painting could compete with nature's beauty.
Each new day brings me a new gift. How can one not feel inspired? Beauty surrounds me in my home and in my neighborhood. My lakefront power walks now trail my steps with maple, oak, and elm leaves frolicking playfully by my side. What better companion on such a fine day.
Blustering winds kick up my friends into blazing spirals, whisking them away for others to enjoy. I'm not alone for long, for in a moment more leaves will return playing tag with one another.
So my friends in the north, this time is so fleeting, don't miss one of nature's truly amazing seasons. Leave your computer's, tablets, and phones, and discover new friends waiting to play tag with you.
I hope you all get to enjoy an autumn day. Let me know how autumn inspires you. I really want to know!
Don't forget to drop by for my second segment in the Rule of # on Wednesday...
I'll leave you know with nature's glory.... Have a wonderful Monday.
