AN AUTUMN WALK

The fields spread out in every direction.  Grass waves and rustles, whispering a mysterious song  as the wind blows through it.
Autumn smells fill the air:  Hints of pine, tamarac, sage;  spice mixed with sweetness.
Warm sunshine touches face and arms, only to be chased away by crisp breath.
The sky is made of blue so crystalin and deep that it seems to go forever.
Brilliant white castles float across it on invisible waves.
Trees are changing clothes, from shades of green to every bright color;
Red, orange, yellow and gold stand out with boldness and joy.
Dramatic contrasts are everywhere:
Shadows deepen; warmth competes with chill.
Salads are less appealing; soup and chili taste good.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
