Autumn Daze

 

September brings crisp and clear days.  Even on a mountain filled with evergreens, colors change and a golden glow warms the landscape.  The bull elk are gathering their harems and their bugle can be heard in the distance as I walk through the meadow and hillsides.  Inside the cabin, a cozy fire is welcome and warming.  A tea kettle simmering on the wood stove makes a pleasant sound as it heats water for a hot cup of tea.  Sunshine streaming in the window by a table invites me to sit as I read or write on topics of my choice on a yellow notepad.  Stepping away from the convenience and comfort of daily life, to the quiet routine of a cabin 'off the grid' reminds me of the things that matter most in life.  Blogging has been slow for me these past few months.  Maybe the pleasant days of autumn will revive creative thought and energy.  I can only hope!

  3. I'm loving the Autumn days in the Pacific Northwest! Enjoyed southern California last weekend but love, love, love the feel of Fall and the sounds that accompany the feeling - there's nothing like it!

  4. Hello La Tea Dah....I have missed your posts. Perhaps, like in nature where there are seasons, we may have seasons of the heart. During some of those seasons, blogging may take a back seat.

    Glad you are back. Susan
