The sun high in the sky, it’s warmth permeating all but the darkest shadows of the forest.
Leaves, after a full season of growth, prepare for the coming fall. Though they still form a canopy as the undergrowth turns to seed and prepares for the end of it’s own life cycle.
To walk among the leaves, bearing witness to the subtle change of season, is to share a connection with the land that is deeper than the roots that feed the highest leaves.
But the sun…
The sun just keeps shining, keeps nourishing life, keeps giving us warmth.
