what inspires you about the fall?
nature’s seasons inspire me in that they signify our lives, requiring a period of work and then one of rest. as autumn approaches, i’m often encouraged to slow down, collapse a bit like the leaves, and to slumber for awhile.
what are three constants in your day?
- a phone conversation with my mother
- a kiss to my husband
- an eye on the garden
