Transitioning

Most unusually, snow came before frost this year, allowing for some incredible juxtapositions.

wind :: delicacy
clouds :: colour
petals :: snow
grey :: growth

I dallied in bringing in the flowers that were still blooming in the garden, so taken with the vibrant colours lasting so far into this season of fading. Last night I hurried out into the dark and grabbed a good handful of flowers to bring inside and place at the kitchen window.

As we celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, I’ll be sure to feel wonderful feelings of gratitude for transitions. That nothing stays as it was, that shifts and fluctuations are always with us, that what ends brings new beginnings. Transitions are at the heart of adventure, after all, whether they be great and epic or small and savoured.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you!

    We had four inches of snow here last Sunday! A total surprise and it stayed for three days! Hopefully we’ll get some more fall weather for awhile now.
