sunday photo essay: falling

I haven't done one of these in while.

Beginnings and endings. Autumn brings a bit of both; the earth-bound leaves and bare branches signifying the end of lush, green summer scenery while the bursts of color give welcome to the cooler weather and shorter days.

Autumn brings to me a sense of renewal, much like spring brings to others. The cool air reenergizes my soul, and I feel ready to reach back and let go and give it everything I have.

The heat of summer drags me down and I often feel stuck, unable to disentangle myself from the lethargy that comes with humidty. Now that the air has turned crisp and the green is starting to fade, I am ready to tie up my loose ends and take a close look at the challenges that lie right in front of me.

I'm ready for whatever is in store for me these days. If you throw hard, I am going to come out swinging. No more endless days hanging around, waiting for something to happen. I've got my game face on and I'm ready to move to the rhythm of the new season. Things are looking up.
