Autumn

I love the way the leaves change from green to gold to red. I love how the wind plays with the leaves, making them skip and flutter. I love watching the silver birches at the end of the garden as they bend and shake in the wind. Autumn is well and truly here.

Maybe it’s the blustery weather, but today I am reminded of one of my all-time favourite pieces of music: Wagner’s overture to Tannhauser. I know Tannhauser is an opera, but I’d love to see ballet performed to this particular piece. It is so bold and vivid, from the timid to the grand – just like autumn I suppose.

  1. Autumn beauty fills me with peace and awe. Everyone has their season, and fall is so mine! Love the way you describe it. Thank you for your encouragement. You are a true friend, even if from afar. I am glad your house is serving to bless others as well, and that you were able to impart needed wisdom there.
