autumn’s aura

I’m off my game lately. Fighting off some sort of illness, complete with dizziness and vertigo, while also trying to function enough to get my work done. My routines are all off, my habits have been altered, my energy is low.

I remind myself, again and again, that this will pass.

Five minutes after this glorious sunset, the sky was dark. Twelve hours later, it was light again. Sunrise, sunset. And back again.

I was still in my studio working when my husband called me out to see the view last night. Perhaps he knew that I needed a break, (and a photo for today’s post). My dog sat in the front yard as I took pictures of the sky, probably wondering why.

Sometimes life is a struggle. A beautiful, messy, blazing struggle.

It’s a good thing we have glorious sunsets to distract us, remind us, soothe us.

The air outside smells of autumn. Gaggles of geese are making their way to warmer places.

Even when I feel like I am standing still, the world moves on around me. At least I am getting lots of reading time.

It seems October’s clouds have a golden lining.

    Prose, poem, prose poem? Yes, of course, yes, all that & more–and somehow you strummed just the right notes, fanned the sweetest chords, for Fall is a perfect analogy & tribute (if this was to be that), for many of us are now in the Autumn of our lives, and when a strong poetic voice is silenced, their words, like falling leaves, cascades wet & colorful into the yards within us.

    That a gorgeous image that sunset is. I feel as though I could lose myself in it. Seems as though your husband knew just what you needed. Sorry you’re still suffering, was the doc able to shed any light on it. Hoping it passes but in the meantime take it easy on yourself. x
