Thought for Today and a Few of My Own

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.” — George Santayana

As I grow older I find myself becoming more and more in tune with the changing of the seasons.  When I left for the grocery store in the early morning there was a nip in the air.  At the store I found myself yawning and grabbing everything I could think of to make soup.   Finally I realized cool mornings, all I want to do is sleep, cook and eat… MUST BE FALL!

Yes, it is.  Time to put away the summer clothes and bring out the winter, clean house, rake leaves, and winterize the car.  Please don’t get so busy you forget to look around you.  It’s gorgeous out there!

“He drew a circle that shut me out-

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.

But Love and I had the wit to win:

We drew a circle and took him In!”

— From the poem “Outwitted” by Ewin Markham

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake…” ~ Francis Bacon, Sr.

“Keep love in your heart.  A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.”— Oscar Wilde
