Changing Course

Posted on

Grace, the lovely big Tabby got a taste of the outdoors today.  I let her come out as I watered mums and swept debris from the giant pine tree in my back yard.  She explored and then obediently went inside without being coaxed.  She seems to have struck a balance in her life as she changes course. Many of you know Grace can be very demanding and vocal about her concerns.  I watch her adapt to a new routine quietly marking her territory deciding how she wants to experience her new surroundings.  Fall is a time of change.   Colder weather sets in, the leaves on the trees change colors and our work schedules take on some intensity.  The last quarter of the year.  It can for some of us be a time of upheaval, often things take a different turn and we have to change course and change our expectations.

Fall

Posted on

There is something wonderful and inevitable about the fall season.  It is the start of trees losing their leaves and revealing their true colors, cooler temperatures, fall fashion and for most of us, a return to school and more intense work – budgets, hiring decisions.  It is also the start of many new and exciting things as we enter into the holiday season. Somehow for me, and it appears for Grace the cat, the fall brings a sense of peace and of purpose.
