Witnessing Autumn

Today was one of the best days to observe the gradual “changing of the guard colours” in the vicinity. A day off would have been good but 2 hours break in the middle of the day was also a blessing. We took a walk looking for the first beautiful leaf then the next and the next.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. – Lao Tzu 

Search begins at home

We all live amidst various kinds of responsibilities or pressures. Some of our choices and some which are thrust upon us. Do you remember a lesson in physics on electric circuits, series and parallel? It’s better to have parallel circuits in real life. It would be impossible to live a happy and contended life if all events in our lives are connected in series. To cut the story short, we decided to go out and enjoy our “we time” in nature in spite of our current circumstances. You may find it strange but we plan and change our activities according to the weather forecast 😀

Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.~ Thich Nhat Hanh

We are happy and satisfied today. Hope you enjoy your day too.

  1. At this time of year it’s nice to get out when the weather is good even if it’s only for a couple of hours. I love the next-to-last image, it’s very pretty 🙂
