Last winter was very hard for me and the memory has affected my view of the approaching cold-weather season. Though I've always liked autumn, it leads to winter, and…you see what I mean? I've been putting some work into this idea, but I just need to go through the seasons and build up new memories. That's what I think.
So, I'm making a special attempt to notice and enjoy autumn details and to continue that habit into and through the winter.
Here is a haiku from my walk today – there is a gradual change coming in nature and everything seems to know just what its place is in this process. I hope I will, too.
Hard gust, branches creak
Walnuts just jump from the trees
and skip down the road
