How do the changing seasons affect you? Since a young boy, Autumn has always had a quietening effect on me. It reminds me of the cycle of life, and how all living things must rest. And how all living things must die, to be recycled into the circle of life. I love the quiet mornings and evenings of Autumn the best, now that I am in the Winter of my life. Through the recycling process, I know that what is alive today will provide for new life tomorrow. Perhaps there will be more on a higher level, and my spirit will find some way to continue on as well. Whatever the future brings, I am so thankful that I have been able to witness the cycle of life, and enjoy the splendid beauty that the seasons bring.
