Fall colours of blue, brown, and white . . .

. . . will soon become winter’s blue and white.

And that’s fine. I am not sad about winters’ approach . . . I have no control over the weather or climate. It’s better, healthier, to accept what will be.

Stop and appreciate

Sometimes we hurry from web page to web page, from place to place, in a controlled environment.

It is important to stop and appreciate the real world, the world we live in every day. That is why I try to spend some time outside every day – hot or cold, wet or dry, work or home. I usually (though not always) succeed.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.  -John Ruskin, author, art critic, and social reformer (1819-1900)
