new eyes

Change happens and seasons turn... there's no stopping it. Try telling a flock of geese to turn back!
 So, we prepare... 
We celebrate the gifts it offers with returning favorites: water color leaves and yarn dolls.
 We pause and take small sips.

And never forget to be grateful for how alive change can make us feel.
 I'm appreciating this fall in the same way one might who has newly fallen in love... as if seeing everything through new eyes. In many ways, I am diving into a new relationship... with myself, my children and this beautiful world that keeps showing me each day how mysterious and often quite amazing it truly is.

  1. Hi Maya!!
    I love reading your posts!! Good luck with your "new relationship"!! It's good hearing that you're so caring about OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD! Ciao!

  2. oh maya. just beautiful.
    i have to admit, i cringed a bit when i was the wood pile. we had a wood burning stove when i was young.
    we had to split, stack, gather......brrrrrrr it got cold on those wood runs! chickens too. not my fave!
    but reading this, it allowed me to take a breathe and think about how we prepare here. just love this
    little window.
