last fallen leaves…

an old deck clustered with last years fallen leaves. Neither winds, rain nor human intervention disturbed this setting.

“Life moves forward. The old leaves wither, die and fall away, and the new growth extends forward into the light.” Bryant McGill

life renewed…

“Nothing can dwindle to nothing, as Nature restores one thing from the stuff of another, nor does she allow a birth, without a corresponding death.”

Titus Lucretius Carus (c. 99 BC – c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the epic philosophical poem De rerum natura about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which is usually translated into English as On the Nature of Things.

Damaged, but new growth is possible….

“Miracles… seem to me to rest not so much upon… healing power coming suddenly near us from afar but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that, for a moment, our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there around us always.”    Willa Cather, Death Comes For the Archbishop

Change & Renewal

It is often said by wise ones, that the one true constant is change. The Fall season is a delight on the front end, but less so on the back end. For most, the gardens are put to rest. The colder temps and rain/wind have scoured most of the trees of their leaves (although as I look out my window I notice my neighbor has tall trees that have yet to lose their leaves…the winds will eventually blow them my direction in December!). The beautiful images of Fall are less clear now. The rivers will rise and cleanse the banks of the maple leaves that fluttered down. Cleansing will happen, hopefully without too much damage and renewal will be waiting beneath that somber Winter blanket. That almost sounded poetic didn’t it?

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
