It’s a rainy Monday in Baltimore. We really need the rain so it’s nice that the rain waited until the weekend was over. I’m feeling a little under the weather today. Actually for most of the weekend I’ve been iffy. Perhaps running on empty isn’t the best plan. The candle has been burning at both ends since school began in August. I’m tired.
The first trees to turn colors caught my attention this past weekend. Bright yellow splashes of color seen amongst the greenery. The leaves of many trees are beginning to shower down in drifts with the sway of the slightest breeze. It is such a peaceful thing to watch. The scene also serves as a gentle reminder that we are well on our way to winter.
This year has flown by. So much to do. So little time. It will be Christmas before we know it. It’s good to be aware of where we are in the timeline of the year, but it is also important to note where we are. Because today is where we are. Today is all we can enjoy. Today where life happens. Life is now.
