273/365 The End

"The End, The Beginning, The Present"

It is hard to believe that this is already the last day of September.  Time is just flying by.  I don't like it!  However, I do love this time of year.  Fall is my favorite season - watching nature slow down and get ready to rest, seeing the beautiful bare forms of the trees,  basking in all the orange of the falling leaves  and the flowers and, of course, the pumpkins, breathing in the spirit of all of the holidays and celebrations that are packed into the next few months - I find such joy in all that is autumn.

Yes, it brings with it the end of summer and shortly, the end of another year, but soon also the dawning of a new year will be right before us.  I try not to think too much about beginnings and endings, what was and what may be.  The present is much easier to comprehend.  I am where I am right now.  I make a conscious choice to live fully here and now because there will never be another now exactly like this one.  

For now, seize this day.  And tomorrow, do it again.
