I'm savoring autumn, taking in details,
storing them away,
for bleaker days.
I collected leaves, and remembered doing so as a child
and with my own children--
the colors, that spark of wonder.
I've been volunteering at a cat shelter.
In case you want a pet,
but not the long-term commitment that comes with owning one,
shelters are always desperate for foster families.
My palette has changed with the season.
I take a walk every day,
try to stay in the moment more
and worry less.
I hope you are enjoying autumn, or spring, depending where you are.
