The sun and fall breeze left with the weekend’s ease. It was a busy few days, but it seems the way Octobers go, each weekend will be as so. Party here and festival there, finally Halloween, and we’re halfway through fall when we just waited for it to begin! Enjoy this season in every way–each autumn memory.
Dancing in kimono, clothing and tea ceremonies, martial arts, delicate watercolor and intricate paper crafts— the Japanese people have such a colorful, and very symbolic, culture. We learned how to dress in kimono and listened to giant drums with heads of hide. It was a long journey there, but such a worthwhile experience. It is enriching to the spirit to appreciate the positive culture of countries worldwide. One day I will go and appreciate their beautiful, nature-centered culture in person.
Autumn weather has arrived! Cool breezes lift my hair from my shoulders and lift my feet from the ground, making me want to dance on their gusts. Tomorrow brings promises of joy, appreciation of culture, and hopefully tasty international cuisine. Autumn weekends always seem to free my spirit.
The sky looks different when autumn arrives; it’s almost as if I can feel the cooler breeze, lighter air just gazing out.
My imagination is vital during the rest of the year, pretending that it feels as good as fall, no matter the weather.
The sky is clear of clouds, continuing forever it seems, until the sunset illuminates the ones coasting in, carrying a cold-front in their wake.
Just looking out of my shaded window, I feel a cooler breeze on my cheeks, acorns crunching beneath my heels, and the smell of pumpkin pie spice, as if it was warming my kitchen like the sun on the horizon clouds.
