Falling . . .

I'm sitting in the back of my house today watching the leaves spiral through the air as they fall from the trees. I can't help but feeling a bit like a leaf these days - once green and vibrant, attached firmly to a stationary limb, spending my days fluttering lightly in the breeze. Now I'm a completely different hue, changed by time and experience, being tossed to and fro by the winds of life, just waiting to hit the ground. Sometimes when I think I'm just about there, another wind sweeps me up and around only to fall back down, this time more swiftly than the last.

I am living proof that people, just like leaves, go through seasons.

Beautiful analogy have a way with words. I think I'm in the permanent season of winter...everything's a little soggy or did I mean to say saggy?! HA! HA! :-)

Just how I'm feeling. Thanks for putting it into words.

You are one beautiful leaf.

You've been spam commented, Oh dear can you get rid of it. Looks like they're covering all viagra options and then some.

I'm slowly fading through a very long fall season, when I hit winter the big game of life will be over.

Love you in all your seasons.
