Nature beckons us to stroll by the lake. On one
of the last warm days, we don walking shoes
and wander about in the glorious Autumn foliage.
The lake shimmers as the sun casts its rays.
Dogs at the dog park were playfully running
about and getting their exercise. The picnic
tables scattered near the water’s edge were
occupied with folks enjoying good conversation.
The magnetic pull of the water and sunlight wove
magic. We allowed the calmness to hold sway.
There is a certain comfort in such vistas. Life’s
cares and woes simply flow away. Captivated.
Neighborhoods come alive with pumpkins and
seasonal decorations. Halloween around the
corner. Leaves falling. Heavier jackets and
layers of clothing. Soon snow. Sweet life!
