Daily Practice: Can You Feel It?

A slight softening of the air? A deepening of blue in the sky? A hint of wood smoke in the air? A gentle slowing of time? An urge to wear a sweater when going for an evening stroll? Twilight coming earlier? Subtle changes in the trees, in their leaves?

Just a fleeting glimpse . . . .

  1. Noooooooooo, I am not READY for Fall yet!!!!! I'm still waiting for Summer! It has been very cold (60's, 70's) in Michigan, setting records. The joke in Michigan is what a great Fall we're having this Summer. And guess, what? Fall is my favorite season. I really just wanted Summer to occur first. So, I will really admire your beautiful leaf, and I will really anticipate Fall when it is September 21st. But not until then :)

    P.S. Beautiful sketch, of course!

  2. I love all the subtle color in this leaf, and such a simple, beautiful shape.

    It's been in the 90's here this week - unusual for the end of August. I look forward to those crisp days of fall though. Apples and soups and pumpkin bread. Mmm. (can you tell I haven't eaten dinner yet?)

  7. Sorry to usher summer out early! Especially for those of you who haven't had much of a summer.

    We've been having quite the heat wave this summer, and I"m just ready for a change. I've also been dreaming of escaping to the mountains for a bit of an sabbatical too. And it's always cooler there than here!
