And the moments we’ll hold onto.
15 minutes, Candace. Fifteen years from now, you’ll swear it was only fifteen minutes ago when she was filling her pockets with walnuts.
So often I wished I could capture the moment to hold on to forever. I now trust every moment has been imprinted on my soul and that of my sons.
How lovely. It's the end of summer here in western Nevada. The trees are still bright green, but tinges of gold are sneaking in to the tips of the branches. The pastures are turning brown, ready for geese to gorge on the stubs. They are practicing their flight patterns now, V's crossing the turquoise skies. Full on autumn, like you have now where you are, is hiding still around the corner of another week or two. Your beautiful imagery excites me for its grandeur. Thank you.
What beautiful writing and those drawings! Just gorgeous! Thank you for capturing the quintessential Fall day with your daughter, through both.
Beautiful. Acorns, walnuts, chamomile. Simple things, full of meaning. You really have captured the amber magic of the meaning and thank you for sharing with us!
Exquisite. Thank you so very, very much.
Your writing is so refreshing; like a piece of art or a poem that touches your heart. Being in nature and surrounded by all its beauty is so blissful and you capture it so well in this essay. Thank you and I look forward to your Tuesday posts!
Glad I took the time to accompany both of you to join in on the fun & precious moments.
Isn't it a beautiful thing, to discover the world, again, through your children. Lovely illustrations and essay ❤️
Walking in a preserve is such a treat, and autumn is ripe with adventure. Add some companions and truly a treasure.❤️❤️❤️
Lovely! I’m so glad you included the photographs. While I’m sure they don’t quite capture the quality of the light and evening air full of birdsong and beech leaves, the colors and focus and perspective are magical. The feeling of a fleeting moment caught oh so lightly.
what joy; thank you for this <3
Another lovely post! Always a delight to read. :)
So so nice, thank you Candace!
So beautiful. Thanks.
I love the idea of feeling drawn to place and, by indulging the impulse, being able to have an unique experience that otherwise would pass us by. Cheers!
PS: just arrived in Copenhagen and I’m impressed with how warm the weather is and how green everything still remains.
