No time to waste…

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne (Notebook, Oct. 10, 1842)

It seems like after 178 years I am doing the same.

How beautifully the leaves grow old! How full of light and color are their last days ~John Burroughs

The destiny of every walking man is to immerse himself in the panorama surrounding him, to the point of becoming one with it and, ultimately, to vanish. ~ Federico Castigliano

  1. Beautiful photos of such stunning beauty, Rupali! Love the leaves, the berries, the bird, the dragonfly! What a great close up…those wings are so delicate, but strong…dragonflies are magical and ethereal!
    Great quotes, too! Perfect time of the year/season to get out and immerse ourselves in nature!
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  2. Beautiful images Rupali, with some very potent messages. I agree, it is imperative that we get outside, breath the fresh air and appreciate nature’s gifts. Here most everyone wears a mask inside but not so much outdoors. So far in our community of about 7,000 we have had only a handful of cases so that approach does seem to work.

    1. Thanks Tina.
      We donot have to wear mask where social distancing is possible. Social distancing was strictly followed in cruicial times. Number of cases are increasing but with mild infection. Municipalities are taking measures quite seriously.
      As of 1st October there are 27 people hospitalised around the country, but just 3 are in intensive care.
