As the end approaches

Soon to fall
London, ON, October 2011
About this photo: Thematic. Glow. Here.
In a matter of hours, we've gone from delightfully and unseasonably warm to brutally cold, icy and snowy. Twitter's heating up with complaints from the winter-unconverted. As I sit in the predawn house listening to the winds howl just outside my window, I readily admit I wish I could be back on a beach, my toes digging into the warm sand as the rest of me does not a whole lot else.

But wishes are just that. And it'll be a while before I'm warm. So for now I'll content myself with this dying scene of a dying season, of a moment where if I blinked my eyes just so, I could hold onto the last slivers of warmth before this leaf finally fell and the darkness once again took over.

There's beauty in the darkness, too. We just have to look a little harder for it.

Your turn:

warm colors 'do it' for me, and warm people get me through the cold seasons. I was watching last night as the pink of sunset showed itself on the mountains that were high above(3350 meters) and still snow capped. the effect was amazing, I clicked it into my internal drive (brain) for further encouragement.

I love your attitude Carmi. There is beauty in anything and everything, if we take the time to find it. Your photo is lovely, I adore fall colors.
